The full Omega Opportunity website is currently under re-construction and we appreciate your patience during this process.
Meanwhile, we hope this temporary website provides some basic information about the project and contacts for further information.

Key facts

  • Omega is a £1bn, 233 ha (575-acres) mixed-use development opportunity which is being delivered over the next 25 years
  • The scheme as a whole will create around 24,000 jobs for a range of skills in the North West
  • Omega is a brownfield site (i.e. previously built upon land) comprising part of the former USAF/RAF Burtonwood Airbase
  • The site extends to 232.62 ha (575 acres) and is situated on the northern fringe of Warrington, midway between Liverpool and Manchester. The site is intersected from east to west by the M62 motorway
  • Omega North extends to 52 hectares (129 acres) and Omega South extends to 181 hectares (446 acres)
  • An Omega skills group has also been established to provide a link between occupiers, contractors and the community to help local people access opportunities with all occupiers.

The Omega vision

Since its initial conception, the scheme has evolved but the vision for Omega remains the same: To bring forward the development as a centre of regional significance attracting business and employment on a national basis.

Omega Warrington Ltd is committed to delivering jobs and investment to Warrington. Andrew Sutherland from Miller Developments, a partner of Omega Warrington Ltd said:

“Our aims and ambitions are far reaching when it comes to Omega as a whole. The Omega project is now firmly underway and we are all committed to building on its success and making the project become a sustainable reality.”

Omega North is almost complete with businesses now operational. In 2014, the focus will go back to Omega South and the new Masterplan which will deliver a mix of more business space and new homes plus retail and leisure opportunities.

Omega is now very much open for business.
