We are developing plans for ‘a super connected digital quarter’ as commercial joint venture with a private sector partner. Bolton will be at the heart of the cutting-edge digital community and become a hub for businesses and people to thrive.

Close to the railway station and the Town Centre the 7.3 ha site creates potential for partnering with The University of Bolton and the creation of a high quality digital cluster linked to the digital media sector, including innovative specialisms such as artificial intelligence and e—gaming.

We are on the look-out for partners with a proven track record of delivering large-scale sustainable regeneration schemes providing digital infrastructure.

“Opportunity is in abundance in Bolton. The people, the place, the plans, the ambition, the drive, the innovation, the creativity, it’s all there and we want to work with investors and partners to make that vision a reality.”
