First phase complete at Lancashire Business Park

Construction of the first new industrial and logistics units at the Lancashire Business Park complex is now complete.

The sites are able to accommodate a single occupier with 75,000 to 166,000 sq ft of space.

The business park is owned by the council’s economic development company, Lancashire County Developments, whose chair, county councillor Niki Penney, said: “We’re very pleased to see the completion of this first phase of the project, as it looks set to have a major impact on the economic success of the region.

“With a working-age population of 710,000 within a 30-minute drive of the site, the business park represents a massive employment opportunity for the local area and we’re looking forward to seeing the first tenants move in.”

Three buildings at Lancashire Business Park, Leyland are being built by Lancashire County Developments to replace a 450,000 sq ft building which was destroyed by fire in December 2011.

The park is being marketed by Jones Lang LaSalle and Lambert Smith Hampton, Manchester.
