The Lancashire Enterprise Partnership Growth Deal with Government will invest over £250 million across Lancashire.

Good progress has been made to date, with 15 out of the 39 projects in the programme underway, and a further 13 due to commence shortly.

Projects under construction will, amongst other outcomes, support the construction of 850 housing units, create over 2,000 jobs and add over £28 million GVA per annum to the local economy.
