Arcus is contributing to a consultation response to the Irish Government’s Draft Revised Wind Energy Guidelines. The response is being prepared by a group of acousticians who act for wind farm developers, council, government bodies and residents’ groups. The group is of the opinion that the draft guidelines contain a number of technical errors, ambiguities and inconsistencies and that it requires further detailed review and amendment before implementation.
A holding response, Revised Wind Energy Development Guidelines, was submitted on the 20th of December and a full response will be issued in due course.
Please contact the Arcus Noise Team via 0141 221 9997 or firstname.lastname@example.org should you wish to discuss this.
Update: the full response as submitted on the 19th of February, and can be read here.
