We have been working with Lancaster City Council and Eden Project International on agreeing a deal for Eden to take land on the seafront at Morecambe on which they will build the Eden Project North.
The City Council cabinet has approved the deal and the hope is Central Government will include it in the Budget next week to unlock funding for this brilliant project.
The scheme will re-establish Morecambe as a tourist destination which it was in past days as a seaside holiday spot, but with a strong emphasis on the rich ecological resources Morecambe Bay provides. The new project will follow in the footsteps of the massively successful Eden Project in Cornwall and has the potential to completely transform Morecambe and the surrounding parts of Lancashire.
We are thrilled to be involved in something as positive and focused on sustainability as this on our door-step!
This is an important landmark for Eden Project North and we're grateful to Lancaster City Council for their hard work in making this happen
