Up to 400 new jobs, including graduate vacancies, could be created in the coming years after a planned shopping centre in Burnley was given the okay by the local council.

The shopping centre, located on Curzon Street, is set to cost £40 million and will measure about 150,000 square feet, according to local newspaper the Burnley Express.

Steve Rumbelow, the chief executive of Burnley Council, said that the new development should help the area's economy in many different ways.

"Burnley faces stiff competition from other towns and cities and we have to offer shoppers as wide a range of shops as possible in order to bring them to Burnley to spend their money," he said.

"Not only will this new shopping centre bring a better choice for shoppers, it will also benefit existing businesses by bring more visitors to our town and create new jobs."

The shopping centre is set to include a large Primark shop and Next megastore.
