Council Reviewing Setback Distance for Wind Turbines

The News – May 8, 2014

PICTOU – The phones of local county councillors were ringing Monday with calls from a resident upset over noise coming from the new wind turbine site on Tower Road.

Coun. Robert Parker said he received a call Monday from someone in the area who asked him to come down to Tower Road where new turbines have been installed and listen to the noise they were making on a stormy day.

“The noise up there during (nasty) weather was unreal,” said Parker and encouraged fellow councillors to take a drive to the area before the next planning advisory committee meeting, which will look at the setback rule for wind turbines in the future.

A large contingent of residents visited council chambers in March asking that the setback for wind turbines be extended to 1.5 kilometres from 600 metres.
