Our vision

Lancashire 2050 is about bringing people together with a shared vision, shared ambition, shared goals and shared priorities.

It’s about the future of our county and its people. Initiated by Lancashire's 15 councils, but involving everyone with a stake in our county's success, it sets out the areas where we can work together to help our county thrive.

It is both bold and strategic, creating a framework so that:

  • Lancashire competes better for its share of national resources and investment
  • Lancashire's public, private and voluntary sectors collaborate better to maximise the best use of our resources
  • Lancashire has a strong and clear voice that responds innovatively to new opportunities and challenges
  • Lancashire has rich, meaningful and strategic dialogue with central government about the future of our county

This is Lancashire

We’re proud of Lancashire. It's a place of amazing beauty, talented people, diverse communities and world-leading businesses. We're proud of our history, but always looking to the future. We’re proud of what we have to offer for living, learning, investing and succeeding.

With a population of 1.5m people, our 54,000 businesses generate 637,000 jobs across a range of important and future-facing sectors from manufacturing and tourism to cyber, digital and low carbon.

This thriving £34bn economy is home to globally leading firms and the 4th largest aerospace cluster in the world.

We’re proud of where we've come from, where we are, and where we're heading.

We’re proud to say: we are Lancashire.
