Bolton Regeneration and Development Plans ; Sponsored by Hive Land & Planning

Wednesday, 4th November 2020 1230hrs – 1515hrs

This webinar will focus on the billion pound transformation of Bolton.

There is a number of towns across Greater Manchester who’re bringing forward major regeneration and development masterplans – but there aren’t many as ambitious as Bolton’s.

They’re taking their first steps forward to delivering their £1bn+ strategic vision and this webinar will bring together to key firsts from the public and private sector who’ll be investing and developing in the town. We’ll hear the latest update on the heart of the project – the revitalisation of Victoria Square which will be the catalyst for unlocking wider growth across the town centre – whilst looking at the wider town regeneration plans.

Speakers for this event include:

As part of this session, Gerry will unveil the timelines for development delivery, procurement opportunities and go into detail about the projects that have been announced.
  • Bolton Regeneration – one of the main drivers for regeneration in Bolton, Steve is actively pursuing the development of a number of projects including the £100m Crompton Place scheme which will turn Victoria Square into a hive of leisure and retail activity. As part of this session Steve will give an update on the project and talk about the wider work Midia are doing to cultivate built environment related schemes across Greater Manchester.
