Davis v Tinsley Noisy Wind Farm Settlement UK July 2011
Landmark case in UK settled out of court – noisy wind farm July 2011
A landmark private nuisance case against a wind farm, launched in the High Court on 4 July 2011 and due to resume at the end of 2011, has now reached an out-of court settlement.
The case involved a couple from Lincolnshire, Jane and Julian Davis, who were forced to move out of their farmhouse in 2007 due to the unbearable noise coming from a wind farm located nearby.
The couple brought a claim against the developers, landowners and operators of the wind turbines, seeking a permanent injunction to limit the hours of operation of the wind farm and have the turbines closest to their home shut down or damages of up to £2.5 million in the alternative.
