Speaking about the scheme, Barnfield managing director Tim Webber MBE said: “We are hugely excited to be bringing forward these proposals.

"Situated between junctions 9 and 10 of the M65, this site offers strong connectivity for business and significant opportunity to relocate or expand in a modern and well thought through development.”

Local commercial property agents Trevor Dawson have been appointed to market the scheme.

Michael Cavannagh, director at Trevor Dawson, said: “There have been a lack of speculative development along the M65 in recent years however the market has moved on and there is pent up demand for schemes such as Advance Point which will be a great asset to the market.

"Barnfield’s confidence to bring forward this scheme confirms the buoyant demand currently in East Lancashire and within the industrial market.”
