Local Parliamentarian to Chair Faldingworth Meeting

Mr. Edward Leigh MP, Conservative (Gainsborough Constituency) will chair a public meeting Today, Friday, 26th March 2010, to discuss noise from explosive testing at Faldingworth.

The meeting to be held at 7:00pm at the village hall will discuss investigations carried out by West Lindsey District Council on behalf of local residents. The Council has also been informing local people of test dates through their website and noise measurements have been taken from the garden of a local resident.

As there is no industry-specific legal guidance on noise from explosive testing, the Council commissioned specialist noise consultants to produce a report with recommendations about how the situation might be improved for local residents.

The consultants will give a presentation on their noise report and there will be an opportunity for questions after the presentation.

Mr. Chris Allen, Public Protection Services Manager at West Lindsey and Mr. Dave Norman from the Health and Safety Executive, will also be on the panel.

Mr. Allen said:
"The public meeting provides an opportunity to share the consultant's noise report on the Faldingworth site and to seek the views of local residents in taking forward the recommendations."
