companies are able to consistently install or
manufacture to the highest quality every time.

Permitted development rights for wind turbines and air source heat pumps on domestic properties were introduced in December 2011. They include a requirement to comply with the Microgeneration Certification Scheme Planning Standards which specifies a noise limit of 42 decibels. The Government response to the consultation made a commitment to review the appropriateness of this noise limit after one year. In Spring 2013 the Department completed this review.
