Lancashire Hotspots: South Ribble and Chorley

It’s South Ribble and Chorley’s turn to come under the spotlight in our tour of the county. We’ll get the latest on Chorley’s £16m town centre regeneration plan and ask what’s next for Cuerden following IKEA’s decision to pull out of the flagship City Deal development. We want to hear the success stories and developments that are driving both boroughs economies forward.

Sector Focus: Construction

Large scale infrastructure projects are taking shape across Lancashire – in this feature we’ll see how that is impacting on the county’s construction sector. We’ll look at just how much work is being won by our local firms.

We’ll also look at issues such as skills – and how businesses are working to bridge the growing gap. We’ll also be looking at how new technologies are impacting on the sector including the rise of modular homebuilding.

The Skills Report

Want to help shape the skills agenda for Lancashire? We’re hosting the Lancashire Skills Summit on 21 August at VEKA in Burnley bringing together both businesses and providers to discuss the future of skills in the county. The event will form The Skills Report which will be published in this edition. For more info and to book your place click here.
