THE ATLANTIC GATEWAY IS A PARTNERSHIP WITH A VISION TO DRIVE GROWTH IN THE M62 AND M56 CORRIDORS AND BOOST THE ECONOMIC SUCCESS OF THE NORTH


Atlantic Gateway can be defined as a series of projects across the North West area that have regional, national and international significance. It adds value to the area’s three Local Enterprise Partnerships, LEPs focusing on opportunities to improve prosperity and inclusion.

Our Board members include leaders from the public and private sectors and includes representation from Central Government. It provides a platform for discussion and action on the area’s most significant and highest priority projects where working together can accelerate growth. The Board have set the following three priorities:

  • The logistics sector
  • The science and innovation sector
  • Growth enabling infrastructure

These priorities align with the recommendations in Transport for the North’s (TFN) Independent Economic Review (NIER) and the UK’s Industrial Strategy. At the core of the UK’s Industrial Strategy is the need to harness knowledge, innovation, skills, and infrastructure to drive the local economy, create sustainable jobs and raise productivity. Atlantic Gateway’s three priorities will strengthen the UK’s international competitiveness and unlock further economic potential across the Atlantic Gateway area and the rest of the UK.

Atlantic Gateway is commited to inclusive growth - growth that benefits everyone. Our Board members believe that creating more and better jobs will raise living standards, reduce poverty and make a difference to the long term competitiveness of the area.
