Welcome to the Den Brook Valley Action Group


Update - 26th May 2015


DBJRG regrets that the need has arisen to publicly issue the Den Brook wind farm developer, RES, with a pre-action protocol Notice of Intent to establish both audible and sub-audible infra-sound noise monitoring. The need has arisen due to the continued disingenuous responses and malfeasant submissions from the developer throughout DBJRG's efforts for obtaining effective conditions and controls to properly protect neighbours against Excessive Amplitude Modulation (EAM) noise impacts from the proposed wind turbine development.

Monitoring is to be professionally established similar to the model currently in action at the Cotton Farm wind farm in Huntingdonshire. Live, 24/7 audio recordings and interactive charts will be made available and accessible to all through a dedicated website.

All breaches of condition assessed in accordance with the Den Brook planning approval's condition 21 Written Scheme alongside assessment directly according with the EAM parameters established by condition 20 will be logged thus enabling world-wide scrutiny of the proposed 9 x 120m Den Brook wind turbines.

Moreover, if, as suspected, the condition 21 Written Scheme fails to trigger measures to address and mitigate EAM contrary to condition 20, the matter will be pursued with continued vigour.

Summary and Update

Please visit for all updates

Our group is largely formed from residents of the towns and villages surrounding Den Brook valley - North Tawton, South Tawton, Bow, Zeal Monachorum and Spreyton. The group is in favour of renewable energy and is not opposed to wind turbines in principle but has found that the supposed benefits of 'Wind Farms' turn out to be nothing more than myths.

As the pace of life becomes more hectic and noise and industry creeps into every aspect of British life, so does the peace and beauty of the few remaining places of unspoilt countryside left in Britain become more and more valuable.

We must protect our landscape from developers who choose to ignore the fact that a beautiful valley is not made more beautiful by placing numerous whirling white turbines, hundreds of feet high in the middle of it. Many people do not understand that 'improving' Britain's most treasured landscape with wind turbines destroys the natural beauty, with little compensating gain to anyone but the 'improver'.
