"Initially designated with twin aims of accommodating Manchester overspill and revitalising industrial areas, Warrington’s purpose soon became to provide a natural growth point for North West England. Warrington has evolved from a medium-sized industrial town to the home of major national and international companies, attracting workers from across the region. Following a period of constrained growth, the town is undertaking an ambitious economic growth and regeneration programme which seeks to regenerate the town centre and harness the town’s natural locational advantage for major economic growth. A public-private sector partnership has been established to drive growth forward. Warrington is now nationally recognised as one of the most successful economic growth centres outside London."
