Noise fears over proposed wind turbine off Dorset coast

A PROPOSED windfarm off the Dorset coast could generate high levels of noise and have a severe impact on local wildlife.

That was the message from representatives of Poole and Christchurch Bays Association (PCBA), who addressed Bournemouth Borough Council's Environment and Transport Overview and Scrutiny panel and members of the public at a special meeting this evening.

Navitus Bay Development Ltd is due to submit a development consent order to the Planning Inspectorate today to build a farm including up to 194 turbines, as high as 200m.

Last night representatives from PCBA warned noise from the farm could damage people's health and could harm migratory birds.

Acoustic expert, John Yelland, said once operational the sound from the turbines would reflect on the water and could reach Bournemouth at about 40 decibels.

“Onshore windfarms are usually built on soft, porous farmland, which absorbs most of the sound,” he said.

Representatives from the group also discussed fears over the potential of birds colliding with the machines and branded the developers' wildlife assessment as “inadequate”.

Roy Pointer, chair of PCBA, said: “We have six main concerns.”

“As well as the two we have talked about today, we are worried about the visual impact, the potential impact on the Unesco World Heritage Site, the drastic impact on tourism, confirmed by the developers' own finds, and the impact on one of the busiest commercial and recreational navigational areas in the country.”

At the end of the meeting the panel agreed that more investigation was needed to assess the potential impact of the wind farm regarding noise and wildlife.

Chair of the panel, councillor Mark Anderson: “Some things that came out tonight I was quite amazed by. I really didn't know anything about the noise. I have had residents talking to me about it but I wasn't expecting that sort of information.”

Cllr Anderson advised anyone who would like to make comments regarding the proposed wind farm to contact their local councillor.

The proposed development would be 12 miles from Christchurch, 13 miles from Bournemouth and Poole and nine miles from Swanage.

A public meeting to discuss the plans is being held at the BIC on Saturday May 10.

They have a point even if we are being distracted from the more serious reasons why this wind farm should never be built.

If you build a turbine based industrial power station in the sea near to the coast it's going to be noisy! (At least when the wind Is blowing at the right speed).

You have absolutely no evidence about noise.......there are an amazing number of wind farms that are already built and serving communities around the UK for many years and in more ways than one. The generation of jobs and enhanced infrastructure in our areas i.e Yarmouth, Poole and Portland is immense when we see nothing that people complaining about the lack of employment and business supporting the supply chain and local economy. I note that the opponents I see speaking on TV and appearing within other media vehicles are in their latter years and you can draw your own judgement on that. Bring it on..bring the jobs and bring the money.....as for the opponents....you clearly have too much time on your hands....

I quite agree. A quick and dirty google on the subject suggests that 40db is about the same as you'd find in a quiet library..or just a little more noisy than a quiet rural area. Another google explains that a half metre wave crashing is about 60db. Granted the 40db will be "constant" but might that also depend on other factors such as turbine load, wind direction, swell, air pressure etc? I dunno, I'm sure google can help me. Anyway, I think I have drawn my own conclusions about the impact of "The Noise" :)
Adspace, it's likely to be an unpopular view but I think It's a fair comment re age demographic of opponents, I've noticed it too...I wonder if there's any formal/official polls on the matter aimed at the generation that will have to live with any inaction? Thumbs up for your braver, sir, for inciting the full-on wrath of our respected older commentards :)

I'm wondering at the wisdom of pinning too much trust in the accoustic assessment of John Yelland, a serial wind farm objector.

But it seems that yet again Bournemouth Council is falling for a crude either/or approach, and failing to engage constructively with the developer. Noise from offshore wind turbines depends crucially on the type of foundation that is chosen, and the noise reduction methods employed in its installation. Rather than just keep mouthing blanket opposition, wouldn't it be more sensible for the council to engage with the developer on these issues, to ensure that noise levels are kept to a minimum?

These people should be more concerned on the possibility of power cuts when fossil fuels, used to generate energy, run out. What will they say then?
Nuclear reactors will not be able to supply the demand for energy because investment in the UK has sadly been lacking.

Not much good employing people at great cost to produce something that's not cost effective in the first place, just as well pay people to stay at home.
The reason that opponents are in their latter years is because they have the brains to see through the scam that is put forward by the builders of these giant fans, the younger generation have been brainwashed into thinking that we are all going to burn to death next weekend unless we build these things, you only have to see the brain dead morons who turn up to the anti fracking demos, bearing in mind that these very same people use cars and coaches filled with petrol to get there and were clothes which is produced by the very elements that they protest about, oil.

They won't be saying anything, not unless its through Derek Acorah, they'll be long gone by the time fossil fuels run out.

As for the noise, will you really hear 40db over their moaning?

If you look around the country there are lots of on and off shore wind farms, all of them were no doubt opposed over them being ugly, noisy, bird killers but did that stop them being built? Just perhaps if you turned your attention to the shear cost and waste of time these things are rather than continually spouting off about tourism wildlife and world heritage status you might just get somewhere!

BarHumbug,

the very FACT that there are a growing number of wind farms in the UK, Europe and throughout the world is testimony to the FACT that they do work and do comply with current environmental and planning requirements.

Yes for sure they might be relatively expensive at this stage of their development, but any newish technology starts of this way and costs decline significantly with investment and development.

You meniton cost as an argument against wind power but conveniently fail to mention the enormous cost of building and decomissioning nuclear power stations, let alone the cost of having to store nuclear waste for generations at even more cost to the tax payer.

This is just a case of the vocal minority of NIMBYs who dont really know why they are opposed to Navitus Bay. Clutching at straws about killing birds (queue images of oil tanker spillages and hundreds if not thousands of bird killed), noise from the wind farm - (which apparently might sound as noisy as a fridge if you were on Bournemouth beach - just go and stand near the spur road if you want to hear intrusive noise - but I dont see anyone suggesting the road is dug up); a blot on the landscape - dont even go there given that this will be 15km out to sea; impact on tourism - just Google about growing evidence of wind farms actually attracting tourism, do you really think that even one visitor who currently comes to Bornemouth will stop coming because there is something 15km out to sea that they wont even be able to see on a clear day?

Opposed to Navitus Bay - then ask yourself Why and what do you really know?

Instead of turbines far out in the sea why don't be just have one of the new coal power plant plonked in Dorset, I'm sure that won't do as much harm.

This makes very interesting reading

https://www.rspb.org

indfarms/

from the words of the RSPB themselves :-

Switching to renewable energy now, rather than in ten or twenty years, is essential if we are to stabilise greenhouse gases in the atmosphere at safe levels. Wind power is the most advanced renewable technology, available at a large scale, over this time period. For this reason, the RSPB supports a significant growth in offshore and onshore wind power generation in the UK.

...and in fairness they also say this .....

We believe that this growth can be achieved in harmony with, rather than at the expense of, the natural environment. However, poorly sited wind farms can have negative effects on birds, leading to potential conflict where proposals coincide with areas of high activity for species of conservation concern. We will therefore continue to require that wind farms are sited, designed and managed so that there are no significant adverse impacts on important bird populations or their habitats.

so a balanced view of the world not just a NIMBY view encourages positive public debate.

Wind farms galore out at sea and very elegant they look. Certainly do not detract from the scenery. Surely better than having one at the end of your Garden. Having said that many of us pay good money to live in converted windmills and oast houses i.e. industrial building from the past which we now look at as part of our heritage.

Hessenford and anyone else, how do you know that such a project will not be cost effective. What figures do you have to substantiate your theory. Like wise with others against this project. We have established that 40db is nothing. I live near to the flight path of Bournemouth Airport (or Hurn if you live in Christchurch), and I am sure the db scale is far greater, although not continuous. Birds have far better navigation than the human being has, and can out do any kind of radar, directional systems, with its own brain. If they find it gets in their migratory way, they have the intelligence (more than those who support RSPB) to adjust their course as necessary. As for the weekend sailors, if they wonder that far out, they are putting themselves at risk considering the amount of boat owners who do not have clue at using them, and abiding by the Rule of the Road whilst at sea.

In theory, there is really no argument to this project, and therefore planning should go ahead not only to give another energy source but to prove that such wind farms are a good thing, and will not interfere with every day life. Visit other areas who have them off their coasts, and then come back and tell the truth. Yes you, the Councillors and MPs against it (Conor Burns), and those who fear of something they do not know about fully.
