IOA issues wind farm noise statement

The Institute of Acoustics has issued a statement today which explains in detail its role in respect of the assessment of wind farm noise. William Egan, Institute President, said: "In doing so, our aim is to enable members of the public to have a full understanding of our work in this field during the past few years, what we are currently engaged in doing and the area of our responsibilities. We draw particular attention within the statement to the fact that we as an Institute are not involved in the setting of noise limits, which we strongly believe is a matter for the Government to decide."
