As a designated mayoral development zone, Atom Valley will receive support from the Greater Manchester Combined Authority to establish strategic frameworks and secure additional investment.
Investing andlevelling up
Integrated decision making
Endorsed by Mayor of Greater Manchester, Andy Burnham, this will help local authorities and regional stakeholders to work together and accelerate the process of levelling up. The mayoral development zone will also ensure joined-up thinking and integrated decision making that’s aligned with Greater Manchester’s wider vision.
Delivering regional growth
Made up of representatives from the public and private sector, the Atom Valley board will refine the business case and develop its strategy, overseeing the delivery of growth across Bury, Oldham, Rochdale and Greater Manchester.
“The MDZ is an example of how the council, the Mayor and Transport for Greater Manchester can work together with the private sector to deliver these environmentally sound plans to make our boroughs thrive.”
