The Innovation Zone Bolton is a major regeneration initiative at the heart of the Central Bolton. It initially comprises a number of key public sector developments:

  • The expansion of the University of Bolton, a core partner in the Manchester Knowledge Capital Initiative
  • The co-location of two major colleges
  • The construction of Bolton One, a health, leisure and research centre
  • The Southern Link Road
  • The refurbishment of Bolton Outdoor Market 
  • The development of a new Cultural Quarter as a focus for the creative and cultural industries in the town 

All of which will be supported by a range of exciting commercial development opportunities.

As the primary economic driver for the town centre over the coming years, the Zone is projected to generate 4,000 new jobs and £300m private sector investment, which would deliver significant local and regional benefit.
