FRIGHTENING, noisy, scared, sleepless nights, and anger, one could believe these experiences were the result of some recent viewing of a horror movie, but I do of course refer to the recent report about the wind turbine.
These damming concerns voiced by concerned Fenland residents, are a direct result of actions by Fenland District Council as it supported, embraced, and approved the Whittlesey wind turbine.
The FDC's dogged and obsessive support for wind turbine developments is well documented, however, what was not so apparent until now, is the total arrogance and contempt it shows towards residents as the council chooses to subject local people to the pressures, frustrations, and fears, of living under the shadows of the industrial wind turbine.
Those responsible for inflicting such damaging developments on fellow humans are reminded that the Council Development Plan states, wind turbine proposals will be permitted where,
You may also want to watch:
"there being no adverse effect upon the amenities of neighbouring occupiers due to Noise Emission, Visual Intrusion, Shadow Flicker, Rejected Light, or Electronic Disturbance," one wonders if our decision makers even bother to read the council's own directives.
As the environmental office distributes noise monitoring papers to residents, I ask the question, how will shadow flicker and its recorded psychological impact on humans also be monitored at the same time?

The Whittlesey turbine should not have been approved, and I say with without falter or hesitation, Fenland is not blessed with decision makers of required experience or quality and therefore not fit for purpose, those suffering loss of quality of life by the actions of others, particularly when policy, plan, and procedure are ignored or neglected, should seek legal advice.
