The Cornwall-based environmental charity presented new images and details to its northern partners, the Lancashire Enterprise Partnership, Lancaster University, Lancashire County Council and Lancaster City Council.

Coun Eileen Blamire, leader of Lancaster City Council, said: "What was abundantly clear from Friday’s presentation is that Eden have fallen deeply in love with Morecambe. The town’s unique environment and location are the perfect ingredients for an attraction that has the potential to not only be recognised nationally but also globally.

“It’s estimated that in Cornwall the local economy has benefitted to the tune of more than £2billion from the Eden Project – if we can replicate that success locally, which we believe we can, we will not only regenerate the area economically, but also socially and environmentally.

“It’s now important that we get behind Eden and give them our full backing to make their vision a reality.”
