"Keeping the property commercial was of paramount importance to us, being able to offer local businesses a home for their business with an affordable bills inclusive solution with on site parking is rare in the town centre.

"We hope many local businesses enjoy Burnley Business Centre for years to come."

Burnley Property Investments director Jake Knotman added: “Having spent my previous years investing & developing in Manchester, I’ve been excited ever since about investing in the town of Burnley, it’s amazing to see the growth the town is going through.

"Myself and Gary have been business partners for a few years now and it made sense for us to bring a business centre to the market as we saw a huge demand for smaller business spaces since the pandemic.
