A 30-metre high wind turbine could soon join 1,000 solar panels as green ways of powering a rural business centre.

Bradford Council has received an application for the turbine at Denholme Business Centre on Halifax Road. The centre, which can house up to 38 businesses, was recently granted permission for a solar farm on a neighbouring field.

The application says the turbine: “will provide sufficient electricity to meet the growing needs of the Business Centre once fully occupied by tenants and to generate income to support the further renovation and development of the site.”

A decision on the turbine will be made next month.
