Store's wind of change

SOME of the £100million set aside last year by Tesco to fund 'green power' could be on its way to the Fens.

The company believes a wind turbine at Hostmoor and next to the store being redeveloped on the site will drive the company bid to "reducing their carbon footprint."

The company has lodged an initial bid to Fenland planners to build a single wind turbine with a capacity of 850 kw, and a maximum tip height of 86-91 metres, with a rotar diameter of 52 metres.

Tesco believes the turbine will have "significant" effects locally but for now hopes for feedback from Fenland Council on what detail might be needed once a full application is submitted.
