“In conclusion, there are serious adverse health effects associated with noise pollution
generated by wind turbines. It is essential that separation distances between human habitation
and wind turbines are increased. There is an international consensus emerging for a
separation distance of 2 km, indeed some countries are opting for 3 km. The current guideline
on separation distance is based on ETSU-R-97 and is manifestly out of date. It is only
relevant to the small turbines of that era. The vastly increased scale of today’s turbines means
that the current recommendation on turbine separation is grossly inadequate.”
