A FEUD between Lancashire’s council bosses over the county’s regeneration proposals is close to being resolved, a minister has claimed.

Lancashire is not yet covered by a Local Enterprise Partnership, which bid for government funding, because councils cannot agree over its shape.

County Hall wants a Lancashire-wide committee, while Blackburn with Darwen Borough Council thinks East Lancashire should have its own set-up.

Speaking in Parliament, Conservative Local Government minister Greg Clark, said: “There is great appetite in Lancashire, on the part of businesses and Lancashire members from all parties, to form an arrangement that, I think, is almost there.”
