Editorial features
  • Hotspot: Burnley
    In this issue we turn our attention to Burnley. We’ll look at its fiveyear economic recovery and growth strategy, setting out how it will respond and reset its economy, focusing on skills and innovation, medical tech and green growth, alongside plans for a Canalside University Enterprise Campus and Pioneer Place in the town centre.

  • Sector focus: Creative
    The creative sector is playing an increasingly important role in Lancashire’s economy and in its post-pandemic recovery. We’ll examine plans to grow and develop the sector, including work to create a centre of excellence in the county, looking to create highly skilled jobs and tap into the thriving UK video games market.

  • Report: Property
    In our regular look at Lancashire’s property sector, we’ll be examining the issues, reporting on the developments and analysing the trends set to have an impact in the county. We’ll look at the continuing tension between communities and homebuilders, the continued growth of out-of-town retail and what’s next for offices.

  • Lancashire's family business heroes
    Family businesses sit at the heart of Lancashire’s economy and are known for their resilience and grit. We will be featuring our family business heroes and how they have risen to the challenges of the pandemic. And with more than half of UK family businesses expecting to grow this year we’ll look at what the future holds.

    We want to hear about the people who have risen to the challenges of the pandemic and have taken on the tasks of helping their family business through unprecedented times.

    Nominate your family business heroes and tell us why their efforts should be recognised:

    While this report will focus on family-owned and run businesses, those put forward don't have to be family members - we want to hear about anyone that has played a crucial part in getting the organisation through the pandemic.

    Deadline: Tuesday 1 June
