Invest in Bolton

Invest in Bolton

Bolton has a rich and proud heritage, and a bold plan for a bright and prosperous future. What sets the town apart is its clear vision for the future backed by political and financial commitment.

We have strong partnerships, a clear vision, and a determination to deliver development and regeneration on a large scale, as part of Bolton’s Economic Strategy.

As we look to 2030 and beyond, the Bolton Council and its private sector partners are drawing on the qualities which built our great town in the 19th century.

We have sky-high ambitions for the Bolton of tomorrow, a desire to create attractive urban environments, delivering economic, social and environmental benefits across the borough. We also have a blueprint to achieve it, resulting in regeneration at pace and scale.

Town Centre

A decisive local authority commitment in 2017 of £100m towards the redevelopment of critical sites has catalysed the town centre’s regeneration. The funding has attracted a proposed £1.5bn of private investment into the town to date with more on the way.

The town centre transformation is underway in five key intervention areas in an integrated masterplan with the knock-on effect kickstarting other investments across the town centre and additional plans starting in new areas including district centres Farnworth, Horwich, Little Lever and Horwich.

Our vision is clear and our ambitions exciting, to create a world class destination for people who live, work, study, visit or invest in Bolton.
