A planning application for a wind turbine to be erected at Green Park Business Park in Newport has been approved.

East Riding of Yorkshire Council granted permission for the 50 meter to hub/77 meter to tip wind turbine on the grounds the turbine will provide jobs for local people and generate renewable energy to potentially serve the business park, local businesses and surrounding areas.

The CGI below shows indicatively the location of the turbine in relation to the rest of the business park, which will become home to local companies with requirements for new ‘green’ buildings.
