A town with a bright future
The town has changed over the years and is about to undergo further redevelopment with investment plans for the borough that include the regeneration of the Wigan Pier Quarter. Development of one of the North West’s first ‘green’ business parks at Westwood Park. The Galleries Shopping Centre is central to Wigan’s retail experience and its owners plan to redevelop the centre into a brand new quarter building on Wigan’s heritage. The area would be transformed into a high quality modern shopping centre and a landmark leisure hub. This dramatic new square will connect with the Universal Technical College, Wigan and Leigh College as well as the Wigan Youth Zone.
