Martin Kelly, director of economic development at Lancashire County Council, said: "There's market demand in the area for new business accommodation aimed at supporting and incubating business start-ups and established small businesses.

"These plans are based on discussions with one of our regeneration property partners, the Eric Wright Group Limited. These partnerships will make greater use of the county council's land and property assets, which will help to promote economic growth across Lancashire." The county council will now draw up plans for the site, based on demand, financial and commercial considerations.
