Chorley Council has granted full planning permission for 320,000 sq ft mixed-use development of offices, and industrial space.
The site, located to the north of Euxton Lane and adjacent to Alker Lane, is currently green space and is around 1.2 miles from Chorley town centre.
The council, which is acting as developer for the site, is proposing 40,200 sq ft of offices, 53,450 sq ft of industrial, and the remainder for car parking and yard spaces. The mix of two and three-storey office buildings are suggested towards the centre of the plot, while two short terraces of small industrial units will run along the north and western edges of the site.
The site is surrounded by existing development on three sides, including the £8.4m Strawberry Fields digital hub, a 40,000 sq ft workspace for creative and digital businesses, to the east; this is set to open in late summer with Willmott Dixon as main contractor.
The architect is Broadway Malyan and the planning consultant is Nexus Planning. A contractor is yet to be appointed.
