Editorial features
  • Hotspot: Coastal Lancashire
    It's the summer, so we're off to the seaside for this edition - looking at how our coastal communities are faring as the county works to recover from the impact of the pandemic. We'll be talking levelling-up, investment and skills and we'll consider this part of Lancashire's strengths, opportunities, weaknesses and threats.


  • Sector focus: Food and agriculture
    The government must deliver a "comprehensive strategy" to manage the effect of post-Brexit trade deals on UK agriculture as "a matter of urgency", the NFU has warned. We'll be getting the thoughts of Lancashire's farming community and examining the challenges and opportunities facing our highly acclaimed food sector.


  • Insight: Working beyond borders

    Business knows no borders. In this special report we'll be looking at Lancashire's relationships with its neighbours, both on our doorstep and in the North and across the wider UK. We'll examine how the county fits into wider supply chains and the emerging sectors where it is making a name for itself.


  • Report: Hot 100
    The Hot 100 is Lancashire Business View's eagerly awaited and unique ranking of the county's most profitable SMEs. We'll be revealing who has made this year's list and looking at what the information we've gathered says about the health of Lancashire's economy as we look to emerge from the impact of the pandemic.
