This document can be obtained from Environmental Health

In addition to noise the following matters shall be included as a minimum:

  • A Shadow Flicker Assessment where the nearest sensitive receptor is within a 10 rotor diameter distance of the proposed wind turbine(s).  Applicants must provide an analysis which quantifies the impact of shadow flicker and how it will be mitigated by design
  • Evidence of community involvement: For any applications for 2 or more wind turbines or where the hub height of any turbine exceeds 15 metres. As a minimum this involvement must include:
    • at least one public consultation event,
    • notification of all residential properties within 500m radius of the proposed turbines, 
    • notification of all parish councils and adjacent local authorities whose jurisdiction falls within the application site or within 500m radius of it.
