Lancashire residents have been having their say on ambitious plans to create an £18million sports and science park that could bring 200 new jobs to the area.
The team behind the proposed development on a 32-acre site off junction three of the M55 at Kirkham has begun consulting the public on the plan.
Local councillors were among visitors to two open meetings held at Escape in Kirkham and Wesham Community Centre.
Around 100 people attended the two events and viewed a scale model of the development.
David Haythornthwaite, head of the Lytham-based Tangerine Group, was on hand at the public meetings to answer questions.
He said: “The overall response at the two meetings we have held has been positive, people can see what we are trying to do and the economic benefits the scheme will bring to the local area.
“Our message to people is that this is a well-thought out, considered scheme that will boost the economy and create fantastic community and educational facilities.”
The developers are now preparing a planning application for Fylde Council on designs created by the Frank Whittle Partnership (FWP).
If approved, work could begin early next year and the site could be open by next September.
