The Magazine

Lancashire Business View is an independently-owned magazine published every two months. It has reported on commerce, industry and regeneration and led on bringing the Lancashire business community together county since 2005.

The magazine’s pages contain news, analysis, advice and opinion on the key issues that affect business in the county. It gives a unique look under the skin of the companies making the headlines, as well as shining a spotlight on the lesser-known success stories.

Almost all content is exclusive to Lancashire Business View, and is written by local, experienced journalists. Our aim is to inform and educate business owners and key decision makers, as well as giving them an effective platform to promote their own brands, products and services.

Any business based within the county is invited to contribute. Our forward features list highlights forthcoming key topics: each edition focus on one geographic region of the county and one key industry. Our advice sections also provide excellent opportunities for experts to share their experience and expertise.

Editorial features

Hot 100

It’s the 10th anniversary of our unique ranking of Lancashire’s most profitable SMEs and the most eagerly awaited list of the year. We’ll be looking at those businesses that have made this year’s list and what makes them tick as well as what sectors are driving our county’s economy forward.

Insight Series: Wellbeing and health

It’s a growing sector and one that has an impact on all our lives. We’ll be looking at the businesses driving the agenda forward and the role that the new £41m Health Innovation Campus (HIC) at Lancaster University will play. The university says that a collaborative approach will be critical to its success, bringing together businesses with researchers and health providers to work together on solving significant health problems.

Report: Property

Our regular look at the county’s property sector will once again highlight projects and developments across Lancashire. And we will also be examining the health of the commercial sector and how the county is working to meet the challenges facing retail and our high streets.

Bring Back a Billion!

Our rallying call to ‘Buy it in Lancashire and Bring Back a Billion!’ is already making a positive impact on the county’s economy. Companies are rising to the challenge of our campaign to increase Lancashire’s GDP by £1bn and it is making a real difference. We want to hear your stories of how you are working to ensure more money stays in the county and how you are increasing your local spending.
