Lancashire is linked by six major motorways, with Manchester and Liverpool international airports only an hour’s drive away. London can be reached in just two hours by direct train from Preston, and world-class port logistics are also on its doorstep.

Additionally, businesses can enjoy reduced labour costs with the average wage in Lancashire being around 10% lower than the UK as a whole.

The county offers a large and diversified talent pool in almost all areas. This is a result of Lancashire councils efforts, the universities, and industry-specific colleges that are scattered around Lancashire.

Lancashire has become somewhat of a rental market hot stop. One of the main reasons residential property developers choose Lancashire is because of its thriving rental market. Buy-to-let developers choose the towns of Lancashire for their investments because of rental demand combined with affordable houses pricing, making it the ideal location for ROI.
