The site will offer occupiers access to clean energy generated on site, as well as data resilience and super fast broadband at competitive rates.

It is likely the Yorkshire Energy Park will include the following uses, to be determined both by occupier interest and the planning process:

  • A mixture of space for businesses operating in key strategic sectors for the region
  • An on-site energy generation, off-site energy generation, and a primary sub-station providing private wire electricity to the wider Energy Park
  • Education and research campus
  • Associated on site accommodation
  • A data centre
  • An outdoor building materials and testing facility
  • Sports facilities for the community

This major strategic development will be underpinned by the availability of affordable energy and data security provided by the energy and data centres.  Innovation will be at the heart of the park, driven by the synergies expected between the occupiers of the education and business spaces.

The development is guaranteed to generate a significant number of employment opportunities for local people, and to attract new investment into the area.

 

A project team has been appointed to prepare the outline planning application.

The project team has spent over 1400 hours engaging with stakeholders, including 3 rounds of public consultation and ongoing dialogue with statutory bodies to shape the plans. An outline planning application was submitted in May 2017.
