Why Chorley?

Chorley council news page

Our central location is one reason, but we’re much more than just a central point on a map.
We want to make Chorley a great place to do business and have developed a range of
services to help businesses get off the ground or to grow, whether they are already in the area or thinking about moving to and investing here.

With focus for business having been on the major cities but with people now looking for new and up and coming locations this is where Chorley comes into its own having a great location, lower costs, fantastic transport links and a huge skilled workforce on its doorstep.

Not only that we are offering a brand new package of financial support and soft landing scheme that will make Chorley stand out as an attractive proposition.

Chorley has a great quality life combining village and market town living with big cities just down the road. Living and working in Chorley lets you have the best of both worlds.

Sir Bradley Wiggins chose Chorley for his family so he could be close to his Manchester training base. Chorley has been selected to represent the whole of the North West in the 2014 Britain in Bloom competition after wowing judges with its brilliant displays.

• BAE Systems
