Lancashire Hotspots: Fylde

In this edition we turn our attention to the Fylde Coast. We’ll be looking at the progress of its enterprise zones development and we’ll be getting the latest on fracking. We’ll also be examining the impact that the Winter Gardens conference centre is likely to have and we are also keen to hear from businesses and get their thoughts on the health of the local economy, the challenges and the opportunities that exist.

Sector Focus: Logistics and Transport

Logistics is a hot topic. Large scale developments across the North West have put the region on the map as a rival to the Golden Triangle of the East Midlands. We will be examining the role Lancashire can play on the regional and national stage. And we will be highlighting the success stories and the developments that are in the pipeline. We want to hear from businesses, to find their thoughts on the availability of sites in Lancashire and what is needed to drive the sector forward.

The Export Report 2018

In the latest of our Insight Series – getting underneath the skin of the issues that really matter to Lancashire businesses – we’ll be turning our attention to exporting. It’s a vital topic as the UK heads towards the EU exit door. We’ll be talking to the county’s export champions and seeking advice from experts as we examine the barriers to overseas sales facing companies and how they can overcome them. And we’ll be discussing the opportunities out there for businesses looking to expand their markets.
