History of the ERC

A successful partnership between The Wildlife Trust for Lancashire, Manchester and North Merseyside, East Bolton Regeneration and Bolton Council  made the Environmental Resource Centre possible.

A £1.2 million investment was made by East Bolton Regeneration to create the Environmental Resource Centre. The building's striking architecture and design incorporates a number of environmental principles and adheres to the philosophy of sustainable development.
