Fylde MP asks for jobs to stay in Lytham after AXA announces site closure

Fylde MP Mark Menzies today responded to AXA UK’s announcement it is to close its Lytham site.

He said: “Since this consultation was first announced I have been in contact with AXA to request regular updates on the situation. I have met with a number of employee representatives to offer my support, which resulted in me organising a meeting with AXA’s HR director, who came to see me in Parliament at the end of May.

“During those meetings I have stressed how valued AXA is as an employer in Lytham, and how impressed I have been by its close association with the town. With regards to jobs, I have asked them to consider all options so that some jobs can be retained locally, even if not on the current site.

“I have also asked to be kept closely informed as to future plans for this prominent site in Lytham and hope it can be successfully redeveloped in a similar way in which the former Land Registry building – now Danbro – has been on Lytham Green.”
