'We are Lancashire' consortium debuts at international conference

'We are Lancashire' has debuted as part of the county's first ever presence at the UK’s biggest and most influential property investment conference, MIPIM UK, at London’s Olympia.

At the heart of Lancashire’s pitch will be a new, integrated approach to marketing the county’s four Enterprise Zone (EZ) sites as one dynamic, world-class and overarching investment destination - the Lancashire Advanced Manufacturing and Energy Cluster.

The We Are Lancashire delegation will also be showcasing the county’s other considerable economic assets, capital investment programmes and development opportunities which are underpinned by the LEP's £1 billion growth strategy with nearly 50 major investments across Lancashire, including new innovation hubs such as UCLan's Engineering and Innovation Centre and Lancaster University's Health Innovation Centre; and complemented by major business and housing growth, skills, and strategic infrastructure programmes through successfully competing to secure ambitious City Deal and Growth Deals which are capable of delivering over 20,000 new homes and many more new jobs.

"It also reflects our growing confidence, ambition and appetite to compete on a global scale for more high skilled, high value jobs and major investments which will help us secure both rapid and sustainable economic growth for the whole of the county. Lancashire is ready to play its full part in powering the success of the North of England and the wider UK in what are extremely challenging but very exciting times.

Lancashire’s Regeneration Property Partnership (LRPP) is one of the LEP's partners at the event which is designed to drive the redevelopment of brownfield sites and surplus property in the county. Senior executives from Eric Wright Construction and Carillion, who lead the LRPP, will also be attending MIPIM UK as part of the We Are Lancashire delegation.

Rob Holt, Carillion’s community services managing director, said: “Lancashire is already delivering huge infrastructure and regeneration projects across the county through programmes like the Growth Deal and City Deal. However, we can’t assume investors and developers fully understand the opportunities these and other initiatives offer, which is why face-to-face engagement with key decision makers through events like MIPIM UK is crucial.

From 2.30 -3.45pm, on Wednesday October 19, a Powerhouse Progress Lancashire panel event will be held in the Business Lounge in the Mezzanine Area.
