Glyn Rhonwy Pumped Storage

Received 13 January 2016

I am concerned about the potential danger to health posed by the noise of the Glyn Rhonwy pumped storage scheme whilst it is operating. The similar, existing pumped storage scheme at Dinorwig creates a loud, low frequency noise when operating, and this is audible over a long distance. There is considerable, peer-reviewed scientific evidence about the danger to human health posed by man made noise, and with the village of Llanberis so close to the Glyn Rhonwy site, the potential for harm over the operating lifetime of this scheme is considerable. I would like to raise these serious health concerns, and provide details of the science behind them. In the interim, I refer the Inspectorate to Section 6 of the Welsh Government's Noise Action Plan for Wales 2013 - 2018.
