The Deputy Mayor of Grey Highlands is responsible for a motion at this week’s Grey Bruce Board of Health meeting.
Stewart Halliday is keen to see Pubic Health establish a debriefing system for people who feel they’re suffering from the effects of their proximity to wind turbines.
Halliday says residents want to know their complaints are documented should there ever be some undertaking in which they would prove useful.
He’s suggesting someone at the Health Unit take on the task of documenting people’s cases.
The idea will be before the Board of Health at its April 22nd meeting.
Medical Officer of Health for Grey-Bruce, Doctor Hazel Lynn, believes there is some kind of correlation between turbines and the health of some individuals.
Doctor Lynn completed a 2013 report on the increase of reported cases of headaches, sleeplessness and nausea in areas with wind turbines.
The Huron County Health Unit is currently doing its own survey involving health complaints from residents in that area, which Huron County Medical Officer of Health Janice Owen has been careful to state is not meant to identify a cause of health issues or establish a link between them and turbines.
Meanwhile, Halliday says Grey Highlands is also separately preparing to conduct its own unique tests for infra-sound levels to establish a baseline for future studies.
