Why Bolton?

Bolton is open for Business

Bolton is no stranger to innovation. We are a town with a proud industrial past and big plans for a bright and prosperous future. There has never been a better time to learn about Bolton’s potential and be part of our ambition for 2040.

Bolton is a fantastic place to invest because we are always open for business, always looking to have conversations and always looking for new opportunities.

Our effective and confident council has also taken decisive action to step in and invest £100m to kickstart the regeneration of our town and district centres. We’re also working closely with private sector partners to develop a £1bn investment pipeline to transform the town centre and drive growth.

“BOLTON IS ONE OF THE LARGEST TOWNS IN EUROPE, AND WITH THAT COMES THE CONFIDENCE TO THINK BIG AND OFFER BIG OPPORTUNITIES TO THE RIGHT INVESTORS.”
Jon Dyson, Director of Place, Bolton Council

Why invest in Bolton?

With a population of 300,000, and a total of one million people living within just 45 minutes, Bolton has the second highest employee base in Greater Manchester and £4.6bn of economic output each year.

Geographically, it is uniquely placed to benefit from the new Greater Manchester Trailblazer devolution deal, to take advantage of the economic opportunities in the Wigan-Bolton Growth Corridor, and to retain its strong historic and economic links with Lancashire to the North.

Bolton has everything investors need to succeed. It is already one of the most digitally connected towns in the UK and benefits from strong local leadership, a strategic vision, a pipeline of talent and skills development, and great transport infrastructure.

The recent announcement by Andy Burnham of a new Mayoral Development Corporation for Bolton will turbo-charge our regeneration plans and support our ambitions for the future.
