Work is starting on the Radclyffe Green development in Chadderton, Oldham being delivered with Countryside Homes as part of our ongoing partnership.
Countryside is due to shortly commence construction on this second housing development at Broadway Green, a collection of two, three and four bedroom homes just two miles from Oldham town centre. The mixed-tenure development, follows the successful Radclyffe Gardens development, situated nearby on Lydia Becker Way.
Radclyffe Green will comprise detached, semi-detached and mews house types of which 109 are for private sale. The partnership with Great Places Housing Group will also see 31 available for shared ownership and 20 for affordable rent.
As part of its Section 106 agreement with Oldham Council, Countryside has pledged to invest £540k towards education provision in the town. Delivery of the Radclyffe Green scheme is also unlocking phase one of the new Linear Park, with £150k of works set to take place.
The 19-acre Linear Park stretches across the Broadway Green development and will create open space for residents to explore and enjoy. When complete it will boast footpaths, picnic areas and two natural soft play areas incorporating balancing bridges, tree trunks and stepping logs.
Helen Spencer, Director of Development at Great Places, said:
We’re delighted to be working with Countryside on the second phase of Radclyffe Green as part of our ongoing partnership. This will provide an additional 51 much-needed affordable homes in the local area and is a great example of what can be achieved through the power of partnerships. Affordable housing continues to be a key priority for all of the areas we operate in and Great Places remains committed to creating great homes across a wide variety of communities.
