The health question (Allen Fraser)
Viking Energy started and then cancelled its health impact assessment – it was only because Sustainable Shetland made this fact public that the “Taylor report” was commissioned.
From the Taylor report it is easy to understand why Viking Energy abandoned the HIA. Now Viking Energy is telling its paymasters in the Shetland Charitable Trust that the Taylor report is irrelevant – they would say that wouldn’t they?
As well as detrimental effects on people’s health there is more and more evidence coming in from across the country to show that prices of houses in windfarm areas are falling.
Dwellings in Shetland lie within range of 70 of the 103 Viking Energy industrial-size turbines. If you are one of those who live within 2km of these massive machines you should now think seriously about the affect these machines are likely to have on your family’s health and the value of your property.
Perhaps you should also ask why there has been no comment from any of the 22 SIC councillors or Shetland’s MP and MSP? Don’t they care about the health of all those who will be living within the Viking windfarm?
