About Growth Lancashire

Growth Lancashire is a business support and economic development company. It is owned by several Lancashire local authorities and operates across the County.

Our role is diverse and focuses on supporting businesses to grow, caring for and developing Lancashire’s heritage assets, securing and delivering external funding, and promoting Lancashire and encouraging investment.

We provide delivery capacity and expertise for Local Authorities, along with a range of other stakeholders, including commercial clients.

Led by the private sector, our Board comprises influential local business leaders and elected members from our local councils. They recognise that by working together and pooling resources and expertise, we can deliver projects across Council boundaries to achieve faster results, value for money and attract greater levels of private sector investment.

Growth Lancashire’s mission is to contribute towards growing productivity, prosperity and places across the County. We are a delivery partner for Lancashire’s Business Growth Hub, Boost, and proud to be part of the Northern Powerhouse Partners Programme.

As a vehicle for partnership working, the company has a considerable history spanning over 15 years. Overall, our vision is for Lancashire to maximise its potential, capitalising on its economic strengths and its built and natural environment. Click here to view our timeline.
