A great deal of activity has been taking place at the site of the new £40m Radcliffe Hub, paving the way for a new town centre and enhanced public services.

Since the start of 2024, Radcliffe has taken a huge leap forward on the road to its future regeneration.

  • The tired buildings on the site of the £40m Radcliffe Hub have been demolished and the site has been cleared, ready for foundation works to begin during the springtime.
  • At Radcliffe Market enabling works are being undertaken in the basement and a new gable wall has been built.
  • At Market Chambers scaffolding is in place and internal and external repair work is being carried out.
  • Around the construction site, hoardings have been erected with attractive panels installed to improve their appearance and showcase Radcliffe and the community.

Town centre businesses

Radcliffe Market will be open throughout the duration of the work and other town centre businesses will be trading as usual too. Please show your local traders your support - eat, drink, shop local. 

The next chapter

During Spring 2024 the project will move from the enabling works phase to the construction phase.
