Council Leader Ambitious For Skelmersdale Economy

West Lancashire Borough Council together with influencing organisations and business leaders from Skelmersdale have developed an exciting place strategy, designed to put Skelmersdale firmly on the map as a place to do business.

The Ambassadors Network skelmersdale-ambassadors-front-page-jpeg_192x274 will be the driving force behind the strategy and Skelmersdale’s future, ensuring Skelmersdale is promoted, talked about and understood on a regional, national and international stage. The network’s official launch held at the Best Western Lancashire Manor Hotel was a great success with over 80 people attending from 55 different organisations ranging from large international companies to small and medium sized businesses. So far 38 people have signed up to become Ambassadors and more have expressed an interest in joining.

Councillor Ian Moran, Leader of West Lancashire Borough Council and portfolio holder for Economic Regeneration, said “I am really pleased the launch was a success and so many organisations are signing up to be Ambassadors. They will play a key role in promoting Skelmersdale and boosting the local economy, which will benefit everyone. Being ambitious for our economy by growing jobs and encouraging business and wealth is a key priority in the Council. The Skelmersdale Ambassadors will play an important part in helping us achieve that”.


  1. Presumably this one knows where Skelmersdale is? Skelmersdale has been long neglected, and is long overdue investment in various forms. Let’s hope this isn’t just another Labour sound byte.

    • Yes, he probably does, and just by chance I was at the Planning Committee meeting last night and there were strong signs of determination from Labour councillors concerning investment in Skelmersdale.
