South Lakeland is the fastest-growing economy in Cumbria and North Lancashire and has the lowest unemployment rate in the North West.

In this podcast Councillor Graham Vincent, the Economy and Assets Portfolio Holder at South Lakeland District Council, looks at why its economy is so successful and examines the challenges that success brings.

He also explains the thinking behind the council’s revamped business website – www.investinsouthlakeland.co.uk – and discusses the impact of Brexit, the prospects for finding a buyer for GSK at Ulverston, and how South Lakeland is working with other local authorities to boost the economy of Morecambe Bay.
