The rapid development of business parks such as Moss Side Employment Area and Matrix Park illustrate the high demand for local premises. Well established, Walton Summit offers a range of sizes of industrial and storage space alongside the M6, M61 and M65 motorways. Matrix Park and South Rings are just two examples of the modern office facilities in the borough.

Through the Local Development Framework, employment land has been identified to cater for commercial growth over the next 15 years. The new development sites, many integrated with new living space on mixed use sites, will complement the established range of premises to meet most business sectors’ needs.

The new Enterprise Zone at Samlesbury and the Regional Investment Site at Cuerden will offer new opportunities and incentives for inward investment years to come.

Our commercial property search makes it easy for businesses to find the premises they need here and for developers and landlords to let businesses know about availability.

We maintain a supportive business environment, offering local contacts, links to support organisations and details of funding initiatives to help businesses develop.

South Ribble Borough Council and partners also offer support to help businesses find the staff they need for development. Businesses including Waitrose and Dr Oetker have already benefited from support from the Council, working with Jobcentre Plus and local colleges, for their new developments in the borough.
