When applying for planning permission, those behind the development said the Eden Project will create around 390 jobs, with a maximum of 285 on site at any one time.
A large number of additional jobs are expected to be supported in the region, with Eden Project Morecambe providing an economic boost greater than the £50m government investment every year.
Opening of the Eden Project Morecambe is expected at the end of 2026, with test events planned for the site and a soft opening for the local community.
The eco-attraction – which was given planning consent by Lancaster City Council in January 2022 – is expected to transform Morecambe promenade.
