Online updates of Cumbria factory’s progress

PM VISIT Prime minister David Cameron with GSK CEO Sir Andrew Witty at the Ulverston site last year, following the announcement of the new £350m pharmaceutical facility

A NEW website has been launched to keep people up to date with a massive new £350m development in South Cumbria.

GlaxoSmithKline announced in March 2012 that it is to build its new state-of-the-art biopharmaceutical manufacturing facility in Ulverston.

Planning and design of the new factory is under way. And over the next few months the company will be providing more information on a newly-developed website about the plans for the facility and other new developments at the GSK site in Ulverston.

Go to www.GSK-Ulverston.co.uk for more information.

People can also keep up to date with a newsletter and follow progress on Twitter by reading tweets from @GSKUlverston.

The December newsletter said: “We are very proud that Ulverston was chosen to host the new biopharmaceutical facility.

“It will be the first new GSK manufacturing facility to be built in the UK for almost 40 years.

“We are looking forward to working with local schools and colleges to develop the range of skills that will be needed once the facility opens.

“Over the coming years building and operating the facility will also create opportunities for local businesses.

“We are aiming to start construction of the new facility in 2015. It is then likely to take about six years before the plant is fully operational.”

The public is to be consulted on the plans in the new year.

Around February/March, the company will be providing a number of opportunities to find out more about its plans for the new biopharmaceutical manufacturing facility, including holding a number of public exhibitions.

There will also be a feedback form so you can have your say before GSK submits its planning application to South Lakeland District Council, the local planning authority.

There will be more details about all the opportunities to get involved in the consultation in the new year.
