Lancashire Enterprise Partnership (LEP) has been successful in securing Enterprise Zone (EZ) status for four sites (across three zones) in Lancashire; the largest number of Enterprise Zones awarded to a single Local Enterprise Partnership. These sites are located at Samlesbury and Warton, adjacent to BAE Systems' operations, Blackpool Airport and Hillhouse near Fleetwood.
Together, the four EZ sites combine to create the Lancashire Advanced Manufacturing and Energy Cluster (LAMEC) and will help to create over 10,000 highly productive high value jobs and establish an economic and investor offer of truly Northern Powerhouse significance.
Each site has 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.
The controlling body for the sites are The LEP and based on where the applicant is from their Local Authority; these include Lancashire County Council, Blackpool Borough Council and Wyre Council.
