Cherry Tree VCAT Commissioners Confirm Evidence of Damage From Operating Wind Turbines

VCAT Commissioners confirm evidence of damage to sleep and health from operating wind turbines, April 2013

“The Commissioners have clearly taken notice of the recent case series of Dr Bob Thorne,8 who found that neighbours to two Victorian wind projects after two years exposure to operating wind turbines had health indicators worse even than hospital inpatients. Some of those residents had abandoned their homes, because of the severity of their health and sleep problems.”

“We call on all respective State and Federal Governments, to take notice of this important recent legal development, and urgently facilitate properly conducted research, recommended by the first Federal Senate inquiry 9 nearly 2 years ago, so that the VCAT commissioners and other planning jurisdictions do not continue to operate in what the VCAT Commissioners have described as a “knowledge vacuum”.
