Hundreds of jobs could be created if Glaxo Smithkline gets planning permission to build a new factory at Ulverston in south Cumbria.
The plant would make medicines to treat cancer and other illnesses. It would be the company's first new factory in the UK for 40 years. If approved, around 700 jobs will be created during construction and 250 once the first phase is finished.
Reduced rate all-day car parking is being offered to support two key Ulverston festivals.
South Lakeland District Council has agreed that people will be able to pay £1.20 to park all day in any of its car parks in Ulverston over the weekend of 14th - 15th June.
This is to coincide with the Another Fine Fest event celebrating the birth of comedy legend Stan Laurel, as well as the finale of the Ulverston International Music Festival.
This follows the Council's £1.20 all-day parking charge offered during the recent Ulverston Food Festival weekend. Organisers said the reduced rate helped attract large crowds to the town and contributed to the event’s success.
