yvonne conner started this petition to Calderdale Metropolitan Bourgh Council and

The Consistent industrial humming that a large number of Calderdale residents are being subjected to on a daily basis.  This is having an impact on peoples metal health as well as causing the following issues for people such as lack of sleep, headaches and pressure to the front of the head, foggy brain, painful ears, stress and anxiety which has lead to me having a case of shingles.

Residents have been unable to relax in their own home for nearly a year the noise is continuous day and night. Its has impacted on peoples ability to maintain their working hours due to the constant lack of rest and relaxation. Some have had to cut there working hours and others have had to leave their home and book into a hotel for the weekend just so they can get some respite.

This issue needs addressing so people can get back to living a peaceful life in their own home.

Two local councils have attempted to pin point the cause of the noise using a decibel meter, it does appear there is more than one source and have attempted to deal with one particular factory which is causing noise pollution. The factory concerned has attempted to fix the issue but unfortunately this is taking to long and residents are still being subjected to the hum daily.  

What needs to happen:  The councils need to carry out low frequency noise measurements in and outside the buildings and to detect the source by triangulation with a microphone array, which would actually pin point the exact source of the noise. Then hopefully the issues can be dealt with and residents including myself wont be tortured everyday or feel their only solution is to move house.
