Lancashire the home of the BIBAs

Once again we have had to disappoint some businesses who are based outside Lancashire.

Every year we receive applications from locations which, according to the Local Government Act of 1972, are based in counties other than our own.

Unfortunately, that means firms in places like Southport, Wigan and Bolton, although in the historic county of Lancashire, cannot be counted.

Sorry, folks, but we have to draw the (county) line somewhere.
