Radcliffe Strategic Regeneration Consultation

Update

The Strategic Regeneration Framework (SRF) is an opportunity to build on Radcliffe’s strengths, creating a successful, enterprising and inclusive town that everyone can be proud of. The SRF will help shape the direction of Radcliffe’s growth over the next 15 years with a series of realistic short, medium and longer term actions. This will guide the direction of future Council investment, support bids for central governmental funding and provide certainty for third parties wanting to invest in the town.

The SRF was consulted upon from 22nd June until 3rd of August and endorsed at Cabinet on 2nd September. Despite the Covid-19 restrictions on live meetings, more than 1,400 comments were received from residents and businesses via emails, feedback forms, social media, a dedicated webpage and also via a live Q&A webinar. A letter was also sent to every household in Radcliffe with details of the scheme.

Geoff Little, chief executive of Bury Council, said, “Overall the SRF was well received, with strong support for our priority projects such as the creation of a civic hub, provision of new school and leisure facilities and a push for transport and parking strategy for the town.

“After reviewing the responses, we have made some changes to ensure the final SRF document closely reflects the views from Radcliffe: this includes the removal of proposals to create an additional car parking deck at Asda, and the proposals for the medical centre car park.”

“We can assure everyone in Radcliffe that we are fully committed to delivering these proposals. Our next step is to oversee the creation of a project management team to take forward the project, with associated groups which will involve the council, private investors, local businesses and residents to oversee developments and provide their valuable input.”

The new dedicated project management team will develop these five key projects:

  • Creation of a new public services hub building in the centre of town;
  • Development and delivery of a new parking strategy;
  • An approach to housing that benefits the whole town;
  • Development of Radcliffe Market and the Market Chambers building; and
  • Creation of a lifestyle/leisure facility.
