Labour opposition leader Azhar Ali said the budget will "sink communities" and "lead to the loss of lives".

Cabinet members approved the funding request from education charity The Eden Project, which runs a venue of the same name in Cornwall.

Lancaster City Council has already decided to match the funding with Lancaster University and Lancashire Local Enterprise Partnership yet to reveal their own plans.

The Eden Project intends to match that combined £1m and work towards developing a business case.

The planned buildings would focus on water life, in a similar way to how the Cornish attraction specialises in rainforests.
