The Northern Powerhouse provides a wealth of opportunities for investors and developers.
Comprising five of the UK’s 10 largest cities, a collective population of 15.3 million people and an economy worth £329 billion, the Northern Powerhouse provides huge potential for anyone looking to invest in or locate a business here.
The North plays a vital role in the whole of the UK’s success: 50% of UK nuclear projects are based in the North; 30% of all the UK’s renewable energy, and the region has the largest concentration of financial, business and professional services outside of London.
We are proud to be part of The Northern Powerhouse alongside the city regions of Liverpool, Manchester, Leeds, Newcastle and Hull, as well as Cumbria, Lancashire, Cheshire & Warrington, York North Yorkshire & East Riding and the Tees Valley.
The North is home to great innovation, with eight of the world’s top 200 research intensive universities based here which amounts to 190,000 students, of which 28% are from overseas.
"There is huge potential in the Northern Powerhouse, driven by our innovative ecosystems of universities, R&D centres and organisations. This access to world leading technology and research facilities has provided commercial success for many companies.”
Jake Berry, former MP Minister for the Northern Powerhouse and Local Growth
