John Freeman

Lancaster & District Chamber are asking local businesses to support their campaign calling for the Government to financially support the creation of the Eden of the North.

"Eden Project North will be the most significant and long-lasting investment in north Lancashire since the canal system of the 18th century," say a spokesperson for the Chamber in a statement. "It is an all-encompassing project that will tie many facets of the community together. It is much more than a tourist attraction as it will be the bridge between the scientific, educational, business, tourism, environmental and third-sector communities."

Si Bellamy, from the Eden Project confirmed "Eden is still coming to Morecambe" during a recent online event organised by Lancaster & District Chamber of Commerce and Morecambe BID. 

Whilst the COVID-19 pandemic has been, naturally, taking the main headlines, the Eden team have been beavering away on the Morecambe proposal to get the plans ready for submission for planning approval. 

"The Eden team have been doing all they can but now they need you and more importantly your support!" says the Chamber. "Ever since the word Eden was heard locally every man, women and dog have been asking how they can help or get involved.

"Well," now is your time to help and support in securing this amazing project on Morecambe’s shores.

We are kindly asking businesses show their support by sending a letter to The Right Honourable Rishi Sunak, Chancellor of the Exchequer via the Lancaster & District Chamber, who are leading on collating all the responses."
