InBusinessBurnley – Issue 13

We are settling back into full business mode after the summer holidays and looking forward to some exciting developments coming on stream in Burnley in Autumn 2017. We are delighted to announce two new business park developments, Titanium Park at Burnley Bridge and Vision Park, which enables us to continue offering quality business space to the growing number of businesses looking to relocate to or expand here in Burnley.

It has been quite a year for Burnley so far – headlining in the ‘The Times’ no less, as an oasis of warmth – named the friendliest place in the UK – what an accolade – and so true.

We’ve also been named a leading business friendly town, ranking a fantastic 11th place in the UK, as we recognise the importance of our businesses and that their sucess impacts on the prosperity of the town. We are becoming well known for having a pro-active council and Bondholder Scheme when it comes to supporting our businesses.

Burnley has a reputation for getting things done and has a strong package to offer investors – a proactive and supportive business environment and a great transport infrastructure, which boasts a direct line to Manchester, making Burnley a fantastic commuter belt opportunity.

We are growing above regional trends and have been named a top 5 Boom Town in the North West by economic experts.

And we have to say it, we have a somewhat fantastic football team too and we are looking forward to the new football season!

Burnley is bucking the national trends –  the town has ambition, strong business partnerships, and the results are there for all to see – so come a take a look for yourselves.

This edition of IBB features a very proud Burnley business Fagan & Whalley, celebrating their 90th anniversary in style with the opening of their new HQ, new distribution hub and driver training centre. There’s also a special business awards feature portraying this wonderful night celebrating our #BrilliantBurnley businesses and their achievements.
