Following the multimillion pound funding package for Brierfield Mill and more recently money for Brownfield housing development, I’m delighted to have secured this further investment. With up to £4 million being invested we will see a huge employment boost for our area and I’m already in discussions with companies looking to invest.

The investment will see the extension of the existing Lomeshaye Industrial Estate along with the necessary acquisition and infrastructure to support the expansion.

Northern Powerhouse Minister, Andrew Percy MP said, “We are delighted to be announcing £69.8 million of new Government funding for Lancashire, including Pendle where it will fund the expansion of the Lomeshaye Industrial Estate.
