Bolton Town Centre

Town centres across the country are changing, from shifts in shopping habits to changing customer expectations, and Bolton is rising to these challenges with an innovative £1 Billion masterplan that has been created to drive redevelopment and growth.

To ensure the town continues to grow the council has approved plans to invest £100 million into the town centre. The Masterplan seeks to generate further significant investment into the town to build on the already positive developments that have been delivered, including the Transport Interchange and Market Place Shopping Centre.

Bolton town centre offers a collection of five major development opportunities in the areas of Trinity Quarter, Church Wharf, Croal Valley, Crompton Place and Cheadle Square. A range of delivery options and development opportunities are available to enable a comprehensive and integrated development of these strategic town centre sites that will achieve Bolton's ambitions as the place to be in 2030.
