Council puts forward plans for ‘digital city’

Council puts forward plans for ‘digital city’ image

Bolton Council is exploring joint venture options to create a ‘super connected digital city’.

The plans, which aim to put the town at the heart of the digital economy, would see the council work with a private sector developer to create a digital hub for business.

The development would be the sixth ‘intervention area’ of Bolton Council’s £1.5bn masterplan to transform the town centre by 2030.

The council’s director of place, Gerry Brough, said: ‘To fully achieve the aims of the regeneration plan, the town needs to be at the heart of the digital economy and become a centre of innovation for existing and new businesses to flourish.

’An investment in digital platforms and technologies is central to business transformations, new products and the attraction of higher value services for businesses.’
