Bury Council is hosting a public consultation evening on Wednesday 22 July at 6pm on the strategic new vision for the regeneration of Radcliffe.

The event will take part online and will provide visitors the opportunity to hear presentations about proposals for the town and to pose questions of their own.

Visitors can register for the event via Eventbrite: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/online-public-consultation-radcliffe-strategic-regeneration-framework-tickets-113321780496

The ‘strategic regeneration framework’ started in June and ends on 03 August at 5pm – the public is invited to comment and engage online at www.bury.gov.uk/radcllifferegeneration or in writing to due to the ongoing restrictions around public gatherings related to the Covid-19 pandemic.

The council appointed leading consultants to help develop a new vision, strategy and ‘route map’ to deliver a plan for Radcliffe that will attract investment in skills and jobs, the environment and civic/leisure facilities.

Every household in Radcliffe will receive a leaflet about the SRF, with details of how they can have their say during the consultation.

The SRF sets out proposals for the short, medium and long-term regeneration of the town to encourage investment and growth. Significantly, council investment will act as a lever to bring in investment from the private sector and support bids to the Government for more funding, providing certainty and confidence for investors

Councillor Eamonn O’Brien, leader of Bury Council, said: “The council is responding to the public with a clear vision and strategy for Radcliffe. One which will underpin a prosperous and exciting future. We recognise too the challenges facing our high streets, particularly as we begin to emerge from the Covid-19 pandemic, making this document and the opportunity to comment on it, even more important.

“I look forward to hearing the views and ideas of our residents in Radcliffe. This will help us to be clear about the top priorities for Radcliffe and help shape where we focus our delivery of the plans.


  1. Bury Council have systematically destroyed Radcliffe over the past 20-25 years. The best Civic Centre in the whole of the six towns – demolished for housing. The baths & leisure moved to inferior placement. No High School for a town of around 60,000 homes. Putting rates so high, that shops closed. Green spaces to disappear with Bury Council’s plans to build house. This small attempt is a poor attempt to paper over the cracks and to assauge Radcliffe folk, after many broken promises. We can see through it. It would help if everyone received their booklet for consultation, which many homes haven’t – so not even a serious ‘consultation’!
