New Burnley Bridge Business Park is officially open
The government-backed £50 million Burnley Bridge Business Park has just opened for business, marking the largest new development on the M65 corridor to open up in more than a decade, a news report in the local media has recently revealed.
The 70-acre site is expected to create more than 1,400 indirect jobs in the area, that ensures excellent accessibility to the town. Leeds-based commercial property investment and development company Eshton was in charge of developing the site, and has received a £2.4 million loan from the government through Lancashire’s Growing Places Fund as part of the funding package.
Once completed, the park will be served by a new bus route linking it to the centre of Burnley, ensuring excellent accessibility to the town.
Business Secretary Vince Cable participated in the opening ceremony. He said: "It is encouraging to see the growth that is taking place in Burnley. It has weathered the years since the financial crash well and manufacturing in the town is now enjoying a real renaissance.
"Today I’ve seen first-hand how the government’s industrial strategy is giving businesses both here in Burnley, and all over the country, the confidence to invest, securing highly-skilled jobs and a stronger economy."
Given the site’s particular features, installing a very solid and reliable access control system designed to manage access to the various buildings is an extremely important step.
