Covering sites across Bury, Oldham and Rochdale, this vast innovation mega-cluster will play a pivotal role in making Greater Manchester one of the best places in the world to grow up, get on and grow old.
Greener, fairer,more prosperous
Levelling-up regionally and nationally
This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to reinvent and rebalance; to supercharge the economy and increase productivity; to level-up nationally as well as within the city region.
Atom Valley has the potential to provide 20,000 new jobs and 7,000 new homes through public-private partnership. And as a designated Mayoral Development Zone – one of the first of its kind in the country – we’re uniting local stakeholders to unlock funding, drive forward progress and close the gap.
If we look back over the past 100 years, this is an area that’s been a hive of invention and creativity. Amongst a host of historic breakthroughs, we’ve founded the cooperative movement, spun fly shuttles, split the atom, programmed computers and isolated graphene. And today, that same spirit lives on.
With a focus on advanced manufacturing, materials and machinery, as well as nurturing related start-ups and supply chains, this large-scale project will be a centre for low carbon activity that supports wider net zero ambitions. Connected to culturally rich civic centres and some of Britain’s most inspiring countryside, this is where ideas and people can live, grow and thrive.
With more cash and more power in the hands of local leaders, Atom Valley is shaping a truly inclusive and sustainable future – not just for Greater Manchester and the North West – but also for the world.
Delivering world-class connectivity
As we attract global businesses and high-quality jobs, Atom Valley will secure significant transport investment that delivers world-class connectivity for every community.
Boosting skills and enhancing research
Fuelled by collaboration, Atom Valley will create a virtuous circle of innovation, industry and academia, boosting skills while establishing Greater Manchester as a global leader in research, development and commercialisation.
