Northern Powerhouse

Latest Northern Powerhouse Developments

We are recognised as specialists in the Northern Powerhouse and our Managing Director, has been invited to comment on Radio 4’s Today programme.

The Northern Powerhouse is a proposal to boost economic growth in the North of England by the 2010-15 coalition government and 2015-20 Conservative government in the United Kingdom, particularly in the “Core Cities” of Manchester, Liverpool, Leeds, Sheffield and Newcastle. The proposal is based on urban agglomeration and aims to reposition the UK economy away from London and the South East.

The proposal involves improvement to transport links, investment in science and innovation, and devolution of powers in City Deals. MP for Stockton South, James Wharton, was appointed as minister responsible for the proposal in May 2015. Examples of the proposals include a complete regeneration of Liverpool’s Chinatown and the creation of the first U.K airport city in Manchester. Additionally, Manchester will get a new £110 million theatre and arts venue called ‘The Factory’ to be built on the former site of Granada Studios, in the St John’s Quarter of Manchester.

For a free 30 minute consultation to consider how the Northern Powerhouse will affect your business, with one of our expert commercial lawyers in Manchester, please contact us on 0161 464 8033 or fill in our online enquiry form.
