Atom Valley

Atom Valley, Manchester’s Mayoral Development Zone will be a vast, well-connected innovation cluster, bringing world-class research, manufacturing and materials together to shape the future and level up communities.

It is an ambitious project which will cover 1.6m sq m of employment space, creating 20,000 jobs and 7,000 new homes which will provide a £300m boost for Bury, Rochdale and Oldham’s economy every year.

Leading Research Facility

As well as space and opportunity, a combination of Manchester’s leading research facilities and leisure opportunities makes this industrial development unrivalled across the UK and beyond. Its position in the middle of a city region helps businesses and institutions come together, with access to the M62 in minutes and Manchester city centre just seven miles away.

This long-term, large-scale project will play a major role in levelling-up the north east of Greater Manchester, as well as the city region as a whole.
