Olympic wind turbine plans scrapped

The Olympic Delivery Authority (ODA) has scrapped plans for a wind turbine on the Olympic Park site.

The turbine had been proposed for Eton Manor in the north of the site as part of the ODA’s target to deliver 20% of the Olympic Park’s legacy energy requirements from renewable sources from 2014 onwards when the site is fully operational.

Report of Bird Counts at East Marsh and Eton Manor 2008

This report presents the results of 12 month bird counts at Eton Manor and East Marsh during 2008 undertaken to inform the impact assessments of the proposed Olympic wind turbines.

Contrary to the claims made by Jules Pipe / Hackney Council, it does NOT conclude that an 'Olympic' wind turbine on East Marsh would not affect the area's bird population. It confirms that large numbers of birds of 72 species regularly pass through the area affected by the wind turbine proposals at Eton Manor and East Marsh. 11 species of conservation concern including 8 protected species were recorded. These will be vulnerable to disturbance and have already suffered habitat disruption and loss of nesting sites through the Olympic development. A diagram of flight directions of flocks shows them passing close to the proposed turbine locations.
