It did a pretty good summary of the noise situation as one of the chapters.http://www.cse.org.uk/downloads/file/common_concerns_about_wind_power.pdf
Studies have found topography and changing wind patterns at night can accentuate this noise in specific locations, but understanding this process means it can be correctly assessed during planning to ensure that properties that might be prone to these effects are not affected.
Doesn't that sound like the problem is understood and can be prevented?
Policies that were less tolerant than EN-3 of potential adverse noise and shadow flicker impacts would probably be less likely to make a significant impact on consenting of development proposals.
As a result they would be unlikely to make a significant difference even to those potentially adversely affected by such impacts and would have a smaller, but still adverse, impact on security of supply and positive impacts to climate change brought about by renewable energy development.
I note current payout level from wind turbine to local community is detailed at £1000/rated MW/yr which I suspect could be the fundamental consideration for some local folk.
