Enterprise Zone - Samlesbury

On Thursday 25 February, Lancashire County Council, supported by BAE Systems, held an information event for local residents at Mellor Brook Community Centre.

Residents were able to find out more about the development of the enterprise zone site at Samlesbury, including planned improvements to the local road network.

The main focus of the event was to give residents an opportunity to put forward their views on what highways measures the county council should consider to address local traffic and highways issues, including reducing the use of Branch Road in Mellor Brook as a through-route once the new spine road linking the A59 and the A677 is completed.

You can view the displays from the event in our presentation (2Mb .PDF).

The event was well attended and all suggestions and comments were noted. 


All comments and suggestions received by the close of the consultation period, Friday 1 April,  will be considered by the county council's highways team as part of the development of more detailed proposals.

Further information will be shared with residents and businesses in early summer.
