Question

I am writing to request formally, under the provisions of the Freedom of Information Act 2000/Environmental Information Regulations 2004 as appropriate, for details of neighbouring/nearby householders noise complaints directly arising as a result of the installation of small scale wind turbines or air source heat pumps falling within the statutory definition of microgeneration as defined in the Climate Change and Sustainable Energy Act 2006 along with complaints about the noise from air conditioning units received within the curtilage of a dwelling house your Council has received between 1 January 2008 and 1 October 2011. Please also state the maximum of any sound measurements taken during any investigated case and whether the complaint was upheld.

Please also include the number of cases which are currently being investigated and, therefore, protected by the Data Protection Act.
