Bury has been chosen as Barclays 'metropolitan pilot', in the Building Thriving Local Economies project, which will take place in four pilot areas across the country, each with different economic characteristics. Bury was chosen because it is broadly typical of its kind of place based on metrics across income, employment, educational attainment and business start-up levels.

Launched in September 2018 and running for five years, Barclays will work with local stakeholders to help identify the drivers of, and barriers to, local economic success in different parts of the country through four pilot areas.
