Martin Kelly, director of economic development at Lancashire County Council, said: “There’s market demand in the area for new business accommodation aimed at supporting and incubating business start-ups and established small businesses.

“These plans are based on discussions with one of our regeneration property partners, the Eric Wright Group Limited. These partnerships will make greater use of the county council’s land and property assets, which will help to promote economic growth across Lancashire.”

The park and ride was branded a “white elephant” after the Lancashire Evening Post revealed the £2.5m disaster, it was costing £30,000 a year to run and was rarely used. It was closed in 2010.

Recently the council has faced issues with travellers occupying the site.

The plan to convert the park and ride into a business park was proposed by the Eric Wright Group who have been called in to suggest uses for the space.
