This new development is part of Lancashire Business Park, in Farington near Leyland, which offers easy access to the motorway network.

The business park is owned by Lancashire County Developments Limited (LCDL), the economic development company for Lancashire County Council.

County Councillor Tim Ashton, chairman of LCDL, said: “This is already a popular business park and it’s great that with these new units, we’ll be able to offer even more space for small and medium-size businesses to grow and develop.

“We know that businesses have had a tough time recently, due to the effects of coronavirus, and we want to support our economy here in Lancashire to grow once again and develop further in the future.

“There is a demand for more businesses wanting to move to the park and this new development will help us to meet this need and help them to grow.”

Lancashire Business Park is already home to a mixture of manufacturing and distribution companies including Amazon, Accrol Paper and Main Road Sheet Metal.
