World Health Organisation – European Noise Report

Dear all,
The World Health Organization (WHO) are currently reviewing their Environmental Noise Pollution Guidelines for Europe, (details here: If you haven’t done it yet, I encourage you to write to them at , particularly if you have specific expertise or had direct personal experience with wind turbine noise or inaudible low frequency vibrations (infrasound).
If you suffered annoyance from the noise or infrasound of wind turbines, it would be very helpful if you sent them a description of what you and/or your family experienced, specifying when and how it started, and any other pertinent details (actions taken, complaints to the authorities or wind farm owners, their replies, etc.). May I suggest you start by saying who you are, where you live (country and general location), name of wind farm and its owner / operator, how many turbines, how big they are (height and power generation capacity of each), the make of the turbines, what the terrain is like (flat land, hills or valley), and how far is your home from the nearest turbine(s).
Please send your email to Mrs Heroux, at
and put the following in copy,
Subject line: Review of the WHO Environmental Noise Pollution Guidelines for Europe

You may write in the language of your choice, as I trust they will translate as needed.

Should we wish to publish your message for maximum impact, we will contact you to ask your permission.
A letter co-signed by about 100 health professionals and various concerned individuals has already been sent, but it is important that Mrs Heroux receives as many individual letters as possible, from concerned citizens and especially from wind farm neighbours victimised by noise and infrasound.

Please circulate to your trusted and relevant contacts.

Thank you for your cooperation in this important collective endeavour.
