Early Breakfast with Jenni Falconer 4am - 6:30am
The turbines at England's largest wind farm, Fullabrook in north Devon are making too much noise.
A noise measurement exercise show some of the 22 turbines are above the limits set within the planning consent, in certain wind conditions.
Developers ESB carried out measurements at 12 locations around the site and a third of them breached the permitted noise levels.
It's no surprise to Nick Williams who lives in the shadow of four turbines. CLICK HERE
Engineers are now working to reduce the noise. New readings will be taken over the next couple of weeks.
North Devon Council Leader, Councillor Brian Greenslade, says: "We are satisfied the monitoring has been done thoroughly and hope the findings will reassure some people, whilst identifying further work that the developer needs to do to bring all of the locations within the permitted noise levels and to deal with any issues associated with tonal noise."
The report is being scrutinised by the council's own noise expert and council officers will be looking to pass on the findings of the report to local people, both by letter and by visiting those most affected.
