Lancashire Advanced Manufacturing and Energy Cluster

The Lancashire Enterprise Partnership (LEP) has been successful in securing Enterprise Zone (EZ) status for four separate sites across Lancashire; the largest number of EZ sites awarded to a single LEP.

These sites are at Samlesbury and Warton which are adjacent to BAE Systems’ operations, Blackpool Airport and Hillhouse in Wyre.

The four EZ sites have a strong and complementary industrial focus, building on Lancashire’s national and international strengths in the aerospace, advanced engineering and manufacturing, energy and chemicals industries; and collectively will help to create over 10,000 highly productive high value jobs and an economic and investor offer of truly Northern Powerhouse significance.
