For the Community

Omega is a £1bn, 233ha mixed-use, development site (on part of the former Burtonwood Airbase) at junction 8 of the M62. It is a joint venture regeneration project which is committed to delivering jobs and investment to Warrington over 25 years.

  • Businesses will provide up to around 24,000 new skilled/unskilled jobs and improved traffic management
  • New homes will provide a range of affordable houses for families, first time buyers and the the elderly
  • Small shopping and leisure facilities are also proposed for the local community
  • Development will be set within a network of vibrant landscaped, woodland, parkland and wildlife areas
  • A 35 acre ‘Green Heart’ park will be open and accessible for use by the wider community

Keep up to date on progress and the benefits Omega is opening up for you and your family by registering for our newsletter and following us on Twitter.
