Background

The proposed development site extends to 40 acres and is allocated for employment use in Wigan Council's Unitary Development Plan. The proposed development 'Meridian 6 Wigan' will cater for a mix of small to large scale businesses. The scheme provides an initial £70m investment into Wigan and once fully operational is expected to create up to 1,500 jobs.

Initial phases include a new access road to the A58 Bolton Road. A future link through to Lockett Road has been a long-term desire of Wigan Council.
