Growth Lancashire is a vehicle for partnership working. It is owned by several Lancashire local authorities and operates across the County.
Our role is diverse and focuses on supporting businesses to grow and simplifying support; caring for and developing Lancashire’s heritage and environmental assets; and securing and delivering external funding. We also have a shared interest in promoting Lancashire and encouraging investment.
We provide delivery capacity and expertise for Local Authorities, along with a range of other stakeholders, including private 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 activity across Council boundaries which achieves faster results, provides value for money and achieves greater levels of coordination.
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.
The company has a considerable history spanning almost 20 years. Overall, our vision is for Lancashire to maximise its potential, capitalising on its economic strengths and its built and natural environment.
