Detailed images of plans to regenerate Radcliffe town centre have been released.

The newly released designs, which will be sent to every household in the town, show an artist’s impression of the civic hub and library that is set to be built, as well as a 100-station gym and a Clip 'n' Climb indoor climbing centre. 

Plans to regenerate the area were announced in July last year after Bury Council submitted bids totalling £40m were submitted to the government's Levelling Up Fund to redevelop both Radcliffe town centre and Bury Market.

The plans form part of a wider regeneration effort of the area, including a new 750-place high school set to open the former Coney Green school site in 2024. 

Bury Council expects work on the civic hub to take place from later this year to summer 2024. 

The local authority is urging residents are urged to read the first edition of Investing in Radcliffe News, which has all the latest information about the multi-million pound transformation of the town centre.

Cllr Eamonn O’Brien, leader of Bury Council, said: “This is just the news that Radcliffe residents have been waiting for – details of what’s coming, and when it’s coming.

“Yes, Radcliffe has had its challenges over the years, and some disappointments. But, as the town reaches a turning point, residents can be sure that change for the better is coming soon.

“Unprecedented sums of money are being invested in Radcliffe to bring about major physical improvements, create new facilities, and make the right environment for communities to prosper, renew pride in their town and live their best lives.

“As Radcliffe’s regeneration programme gets under way, people across the town can genuinely look forward to a brighter future.

“With a brand-new school, plus modern town centre facilities for leisure, plus a new library and wellbeing, learning and cultural opportunities, Radcliffe is most definitely on the up.”
