No. 10 – Community Health and Wellbeing

Wednesday, 11th May 2022

In Webinar No. 10, we discussed the Human Health Risk Assessment, which examined previous studies through a community lens.

Note no questions were asked during the webinar but a comment was raised: "More a comment than a question given the likely time to the project being up and running if they are buying new trucks etc the option of using electric vehicles is potentially in play given more models are coming onto the market and that will impact positively on any noise created." WIM Resource acknowledges that over the life of the Avonbank Project, new and improved technologies will continue to emerge and we will ensure that we use best practice to reduce noise as far as practically. At present electric vehicles are not intended to be utilised at the project, but WIM will assess technologies and improvements as they emerge.
