She has verally told us, she if possible doesn't want to issue any paperwork. She has showed us no I.D. If problem persists she could serve us an abatement order. She is trying to make out that the noise is a nuisance but we are on crofting land. I stood at the entrance of those making the complaints this morning and I could not here it for the noise of the traffic the main A9.
Basically we want to know what our rights are. Because we are on crofting land can we have this machine running through the day, can she serve an abatement order without measuring the noise level. Do we have the right to 7 days notice to make changes. We have contacted the police and they say there is no reason why we can't have it on. It is turned off during the night. We are losing a lot of money on feed for our cattle are the crows are destroying it.
Spoken to Environmental Health Officer tonight and she is coming back out to see us on Tuesday. She told us we have wasted our money as she can issue an abatement order without a meter reading. She is not interested in health and safety, welfare of animals or any other aspects of the croft, only noise.
