The Radcliffe and Redvales Flood Defence Scheme is led by the Environment Agency in partnership with Bury Council. It's designed to protect up to 870 properties from a repeat of the devastating flooding seen on Boxing Day 2015.

The £40 million scheme saw more than 2.5 kilometres of flood defences put in place to provide flood protection to Radcliffe and Redvales communities for the next 100 years.

The scheme features raised flood defences at key locations along the edge of the River Irwell and also includes the creation of new wildlife habitat, increased green spaces and amenity areas including improved sports facilities.
