PLANS for a small business start-up unit in a prominent building in Morecambe’s West End could be developed.

Centenary House in Regent Road could provide high quality office spaces for small businesses.

Lancaster City Council has spent £54,753 on a feasibility study to look at providing them.

The building is currently occupied on the ground floor by a Co-op supermarket.

The city council said that following the study, it has appointed Leeds-based developer Eido to develop a viable proposal for the use of the building over the next 12 months.

The study formed part of the West End Masterplan strategy, with aims to regenerate the surrounding area.

Coun Janice Hanson, who has cabinet responsibility for economic regeneration and planning, said that it would be great to offer the facility in the West End and raise the profile of the area.
