Alternatives to Proven 15

Planner suggesting I look for different model

An initial discussion with the local planning dept suggested that they are worried about noise from the Proven 15s. Its not clear whether they have received actual complaints, or whether they are just not happy about the data from the manufacturers. (Understandably a planning officer wouldn't want to discuss specifics of other applications with me).

Meanwhile he was suggesting that I might want to look for a quieter machine, and apparently its preferred if they are less than 20m to the tip.

I haven't yet managed to speak to Environmental Health who would be assessing noise for the planners. They may be able to give me more specifics.

Can anyone shed any light on the noise situation? Its frustrating that none of the manufacturers provide the source noise data that's actually needed (noise at 10m/s)

Also, any suggestions as to alternatives if the Proven is unsuitable for my site?
