Just a quick update on Monday night's mysterious banging. Turns out it was indeed nighttime construction work at the Thanet Offshore Array, where they're pile-driving 100 wind turbines into the sea bed off Margate.
The array's owners, Vattenfall, have apologised for any inconvenience to the isle's inhabitants and said that Monday's disturbance was caused by an unusual combination of weather which drove the sound inland. They say it's unlikely to happen again as they did five years of environmental studies before work began to minimise the impact on residents. However, they've promised to consult on what can be done to change the situation should it happen again.
Contrast that with Manston owners Infratil. They want to fly jumbos over us all night, every night. No environmental studies. No apologies. No nothing. Perhaps they could learn something about being good neighbours from Vattenfall. With that, I'll stop banging on!
