The North is cool. It’s where it’s at these days. London is so 2015.
2016 is the year that the Northern Powerhouse takes control.
The Northern Powerhouse is the collective force of the 15 million residents of cities up the top end of the M1 which is hoped to rival that of London and rebalance the north/south divide that the country faces at the moment.
The North has strong industries in digital services, manufacturing, technology, financial services and the science sector as well as the service industry. Cities including Leeds, Sheffield and Manchester have booming economies and are expected to do even better with a number of continued and upcoming regeneration projects.
Manchester’s Trafford Park is one success story from the Northern Powerhouse. The area’s decline before the 1980s was called “spectacular and disastrous” by Member of Parliament for Stretford, Tony Lloyd.
However, The Trafford Park Development Corporation was formed in 1987 and has managed to revive the fortunes of the area. Billions of pounds of investment were procured by the corporation, with 35,000 jobs generated.
