1 in which the Waubra Foundation ensured you and fellow relevant Ministers were legally on notice about the serious adverse health effects from wind turbine noise pollution, which is directly causing noise nuisance to Victorian rural families, driving them out of their homes.
I note again that you were made personally aware of the noise nuisance occurring at the Waubra Wind Development from affidavits from a number of Waubra residents, in mid 2010, before I joined the Waubra Foundation. These legal statements were given to you by former Waubra farmer and resident, Mr Noel Dean, at a Community Cabinet Meeting in Bendigo, when you were the former Health Minister.
The Waubra Foundation has copies of internal documents from 2009 obtained under FOI from the Victorian Health Department, which indicate health department staff were aware of reports of adverse health effects in wind turbine neighbours, and of course there are also the letters which Dr David Iser sent to the former Victorian Premier Steve Bracks, and then Ministers Brumby, Delahunty, and Thwaites, reporting his concerns about the adverse health effects he had seen in his patients, and identified in his world first population survey, in May, 2004.3 There are also the admissions made by Medical Practitioners Dr Simon Slota Kan and Dr Stephanie Williams, employed by the Victorian Department of Health in April and October 2011, (with plenty of witnesses) that they accepted the problems the residents were reporting were real.
