Autumn 2021Rochdale Development Agency
Rochdale Development Agency was established to promote Rochdale as a central investment location while continuing to support and assist existing investors. It actively encourages and assists investment and promotes the borough as one of the most business-friendly locations in the UK.
The RDA has strong links with both the council and the commercial sector and has helped many businesses relocate to the area including Dachser, JD Sports, ASDA (Wincanton), Takeuchi and Nobilia.
To make business relocation as smooth as possible, the RDA is able to assist businesses in many areas including commercial property searches, advice and guidance on expansion and relocation, advice on financial assistance and support with recruitment and training.
There is a rapid response to all investor enquiries and a single point of contact is allocated within the team to co-ordinate all aspects of investment enquiry. Once a business has located to Rochdale, the RDA has a dedicated aftercare service. This ensures businesses here thrive.
Research undertaken by the ONS, showed that business survival rates in Rochdale have consistently been higher than for Greater Manchester as a whole.
Rochdale Development Agency is a local authority controlled company of Rochdale Borough Council.
