Watson, Great Places plot 132 Radcliffe homes 

The site of the town’s former swimming pool is to be redeveloped more than six years after the leisure facility closed its doors. 

Radcliffe Pool and Fitness Centre was demolished in 2016 and has been vacant since, aside from a stint as a Covid testing facility. 

Now, Salford-based developer Watson Homes and Great Places Housing Group are forging ahead with plans to build 132 homes on the site. 97 of the homes would be available on affordable tenures including rent-to-buy and social rent. 

The properties will be a mix of one- and two-bedroom apartments. Those not designated as affordable will be available for market rent. 

The Green Street site has been identified as part of the Radcliffe Strategic Regeneration Framework as a key placemaking site. Bury Council signed off on its disposal to Watson 12 months ago.

Watson and Great Places’ plans also feature 13,000 sq ft of commercial space, including offices. 

Designed by TADW Architects, the scheme will incorporate carbon-saving technologies such as PV panels and air source heat pumps.

Well the people of Radcliffe are definitely resilient, we’ve had to be over the years of Bury council rule and the line” benefitting from all the local facilities of Radcliffe” hahaha!! What local facilities?? No bank, no civic suite, no high school, no swimming baths ( unless you count the paddling pool at coney green ) no shops, what a joke.
