NVAG was founded in May 2012 by residents Anne Massie, Zara Kitson and Archie McIver, its aim to resolve the specific issue of noise and vibration from heavy freight running on a reopened railway line. That project resulted in the Local Authority commissioning an independent noise and vibration assessment and subsequently serving an abatement order. Shortly afterwards, due to ‘commercial reasons’, the coal freight ceased to run. Now, Archie McIver is in communication with the local authority with a view to putting monitoring and a decision-making process in place so that environmental pollution will be automatically trigger an alert and the council can act to protect those affected promptly and effectively.
