Benefits to the local community

Noise from the windfarm is evident in the local villages, and the minutes of the Bridekirk Parish Council meeting held on 11th December 2014 mention the fact that the noise from Tallentire Windfarm is not compliant and that this has been confirmed by S Tranter of Allerdale Environmental Team.
