"It will transform TraffordCity, bring fantastic employment opportunities as well as bolster the regional economy including tourism and be a key contributor to the Northern Powerhouse."
Therme's water park is expected to attract up to two million visitor a year over five years which would make it the most-visited water-based attraction in Europe.
