Bury Council

Bury Council was formed in 1974 following local government re-organisation, and is now one of the ten districts in Greater Manchester.

The new borough brought together the towns of Bury, Radcliffe, Prestwich, Whitefield, Ramsbottom and Tottington, and now has a population of around 185,000.

As a metropolitan council, Bury is a 'single-tier' organisation that is responsible for the full range of local authority services, from education and social services to highways, parks and leisure. It is the borough's largest employer, with more than 8,000 employees.

BusinessLodge Bury

Bury BusinessLodge provide a superb range of flexible serviced offices, meeting venues and executive virtual office services. Offering brilliant accessibility in a modern working environment, with fantastic onsite facilities and dedicated support team.

We don’t tie clients down with conventional leases, enabling you to upsize or downsize when you need to (or take a short term contract if that’s what you need). We like this approach because it frees up your cash and also takes away any worries about predicting the future.

Why tie yourself into four desks when you might soon need ten! We’re flexible with our packages too – meaning you can tailor things like broadband, telecoms and servers to your exact requirements. So, if you have a growing business, we reckon there are two big priorities – flexibility and focus.

By taking a serviced office from us, we provide the flexibility so that you can focus.
