Welcome to the Constellation Partnership
Creating the place where everything connects
The Constellation Partnership offers a remarkable investment opportunity at the heart of the UK economy. Supercharged by the UK Government’s once-in-a-lifetime investment in High Speed 2 (HS2), the new high speed rail link connecting the cities of London, Birmingham, Manchester and Leeds, it’s massive potential is about to be unleashed.
With powerful Government backing, the Constellation Partnership's ambition is to deliver 100,000 new homes and 120,000 new jobs by 2040.
On the 1 November, 2018, The Constellation Partnership released its HS2 Growth Strategy which outlines the important case for investment in the region. The strategy features key information around the economic potential of HS2 and how we are working on getting the right solution for the area. Ideally positioned between Birmingham and Manchester the region sets to be a beacon of transformational economic growth. Download the strategy to find out more (PDF, 3MB).
The Constellation occupies the economically fertile, but relatively untapped ground, perfectly placed between the Northern Powerhouse and Midlands Engine right at the heart of the UK economy. The Constellation provides a superb and perfectly balanced mix of economic opportunities, from the high-tech clusters of the historic Cheshire plain towns, the city of Stoke-on-Trent’s international centre of ceramics, the rolling hills and vibrant enterprise culture of Staffordshire, to the nationally strategic HS2-hub town of Crewe. It’s a constellation of interconnected economic stars.
The Partnership's ambition is to deliver 100,000 homes and create 120,000 jobs by 2040.
There are already a number of key investment propositions across the region and a developing portfolio for investors and enterprise to help shape and influence. The Constellation is now weaving the diversity of this economic, social and geographical landscape to create an economically fertile environment for HS2 to land in.
A wide range of locally backed, highly investable projects are complemented by a series of emerging proposals introduced here, which will underpin the future development of the zone, ensuring investors are in the best position to realise the potential for strong returns and capital growth.
