View from Ramsbottom towards City Centre Manchester


Bury is one of the ten districts that collectively make up Greater Man- chester and sits in the north of the conurbation. Greater Manchester is widely recognised as the commercial, financial, educational and cultur- al capital of the north and home to the UK’s strongest economic centre outside London and the South East.


Greater Manchester is located at the heart of the UK and is only a short distance from other major cities such as Leeds and Liverpool.


It has the UK’s third largest airport and has excellent road and rail links to other major cities across the country, including London which is only two hours away by rail.


Bury has enjoyed sustained success over recent years, attracting in- vestment and development which have dramatically transformed the town into an attractive place to live, work, study and visit. The growth of the town has not happened by chance - it is the result of good plan- ning and co-operation between the public and private sector, the local community and partner organisations.


Bury Council is keen to see the borough continue to grow in a sustaina- ble and managed way, using effective partnership working to embrace inclusive growth. One of Bury’s key ambitions is for it to become a well-connected place with a sustainable and competitive local econo- my, vibrant and healthy communities and a high quality environment.


More than a fifth of Bury residents in employment are in professional occupations, and a further 10% are managers. directors and senior officials


A Bury good place to live


Bury forms a gateway between the thriving city centre of Manchester to the south and the more rural landscapes of Lancashire to the north. As a result, it contains many features that are characteristic of both areas, creating an attractive blend of vibrant town centres, suburban neighbourhoods and extensive areas of countryside.


Bury boasts an attractive environment with good quality yet relatively affordable housing. Crime rates are below the regional average, and it has long had a strong reputation for excellent schools and higher education facilities.


Access is excellent, as Bury is less than 30 minutes by Metrolink from Manchester city centre and enjoys excellent road and rail links to the wider Greater Manchester area and beyond, including Man- chester Airport.
