Bald Hills Wind Farm received a copy of a report by James C Smith & Associates (Report) earlier this week regarding the alleged nuisance caused by noise levels associated with the wind farm.
We have had no prior opportunity to review this Report. While we review its content, we would like to highlight that Bald Hills Wind Farm is fully compliant with noise limits stipulated in its planning permit granted by the State Government of Victoria.
Assessing any nuisance associated with noise is a complex area. Since commencing operations, Bald Hills Wind Farm has engaged noise experts to conduct extensive noise monitoring which confirms its compliance with planning permit requirements.
As the related nuisance complaint remains under investigation by the South Gippsland Shire Council, we are not in a position to comment further on this or the Report.
