Have there been any complaints about noise and vibration from the Jersey Electricity Company substation which is situated at the Drury Lane end of College Gardens?
If so, how many complaints have been made?
We have conducted a search of the Environmental and Consumer Protection (ECP) system from 2013 to 7 April 2022 using the search term 'JEC Substation' since the current ECP was installed in 2013.
In order to protect the identity of individuals, disclosure control has been applied to this response as complaint numbers are fewer than five. Therefore Article 25 (Personal Information) of the Freedom of Information (Jersey) Law 2011 has been applied.
It should be noted that due to search limitations within the system there may be further complaints which have not been identified by this search. For example, if the complaint was logged against the complainant's property and not specifically against the substation it would not be picked up by the search.
