Heysham and Morecambe are an extremely popular traditional holiday and residential destination sitting on the eastern shores of Morecambe Bay looking towards the Lakeland Fells.
Preston is located some 28 miles to the south, Lancaster 3 miles to the east and to the north west and north east lie the Lake District and Yorkshire Dales National Parks respectively.
Heysham and Morecambe boast a wealth of attractions, benefitting from ongoing development and regeneration initiatives including the proposed Eden Project North for which a planning application has been recently submitted.
Designed to take into account the ecology of the bay, Eden Project North will further enhance the tourist and resident attraction of Morecambe, once built, as well as further improve student diversity in conjunction with Lancaster University.
Lancaster University is a major employer. The Nuclear Power Station at Heysham is a significant employer. There is also a busy roll on roll off ferry terminal at Heysham Port.
The Bay Gateway relief road provides an easy access M6 link which significantly improves journey times to the M6 motorway at Junction 34, ideal for commuters to Preston, Kendal, Manchester and beyond.
The main West Coast railway line is also nearby, accessed at Lancaster train station offering fast regular journeys between London and Edinburgh.
The population of Heysham and Morecambe is estimated at some 55,000.
