Housing regeneration is an essential part of our investing in Radcliffe redevelopment programme. Here you can find out about the key schemes that are coming forward to provide that all-important new housing for local people.

800 plus new homes coming to Radcliffe

A range of brownfield sites across Radcliffe are to be transformed to regenerate the area and to provide attractive, much-needed new homes.

211 homes at York Street

Thanks to a £1.95m grant from the Brownfield Housing Fund, land at York Street is being transformed by Kellen Homes to provide 211 brand new houses.

  • Work started on the scheme at the end of 2023 and completion is expected by 2026

90 homes at School Street

This scheme will bring back into use a disused piece of land, on the site of the former Radcliffe High School, to provide a variety of two, three and four-bed family homes. 75% will be for full open market sale, with 25% being made available as Affordable Housing.

  • Hive Homes will begin site works during spring 2024

400 homes at the former East Lancs Paper Mill site

A partnership agreement has been formed between Homes England and Morris Homes to develop this site which is one of the largest brownfield housing sites in the borough

This major scheme to create a distinctive and welcoming new place to live is being progressed through the planning system by developer Morris Homes. Plans include a mix of two, three and four-bedroom houses as well as two-bedroom apartments.

The development will look to respect the heritage of the site, enhance the natural features and biodiversity of the area, and develop the sporting facilities of the cricket club.

  • Construction will begin during winter 2024

132 new homes at Green Street

An exciting town centre apartment scheme has been brought forward by Watson Homes who will also relocate their head office to Radcliffe. The development consists of 132 homes plus 13,000 sq ft of commercial space. The scheme will transform and bring back into use the site of the former Radcliffe Pool.

The 132 homes will be one-bed and two-bed apartments to cater for smaller households. 97 apartments will be Affordable Housing and there will be a private rented block, plus ground floor retail/food and beverage units.

  • Construction started on the scheme in 2023 and completion is expected by 2026

Whittaker Street

Planning approval for demolition of the existing disused building has been approved and demolition will start soon.

  • The site has potential to provide 25 new homes

Under the Affordable Housing Scheme these three sites will bring:

  • 23 affordable homes at School Street
  • 97 affordable homes at Green Street
  • 100 affordable homes at the former East Lancs Paper Mill
