STOCKUP FORSUMMERWITH LIFE’S ABEACH BUSINESS owners, residents and commu- nity leaders have joined Bury Council in un- veiling the latest plans to regenerate Rad- cliffe town centre. Making the most of Radcliffe’s assets and delivering a future where the town achieves its ‘incredible’ potential is at the core of a new place-making project. Radcliffe has been working with experts thinkingplace to consider how it should be por- trayed to various groups, primarily those seek- ing to invest in the town. And after four months, two workshops and dozens of interviews and conversations with Radcliffe people, the town’s new ‘place proposi- tion’ has now been officially unveiled. At the core of the work is how Radcliffe’s good housing, great transport links, fantastic outdoor spaces and Radcliffe’s biggest asset of all – its community – can be capitalised on. Three key themes have been developed: Animating Radcliffe’s hub and heart – bringing the buzz from Radcliffe Market out into Radcliffe Piazza and nearby streets with colour, greenness and events A connected, creative community – mak- ing the most of great links with Bury, Bolton and Manchester, and creating a hive for cre- ative people and start-ups Making our water work – finding ways to open up access to Radcliffe’s wonderful wa- terways, adding beauty to the place and of- fering potential for Radcliffe to become a lei- sure destination. A visual identity and a colour palette, plus a narrative and a suite of photography, has been created and will be made available for use by the community of Radcliffe. The place-making project comes at a time when Radcliffe’s regeneration is moving for- ward at pace, with work beginning on the re- moval of shutters and repainting of Radcliffe Piazza’s bandstand, and new planting, benches and wayfinding signage in the town centre. Led by Radcliffe Regeneration Task Group, the project also includes a shop-frontage scheme, events on Radcliffe Piazza and in emp- ty shops to draw more people into the town, ac- tion on parking and improved CCTV coverage. Jamie Walker is chair of Radcliffe Regenera- tion Task Group, which is made up of represen- tatives from community groups, local business- es, local councillors and Bury Council. Radcliffe’s vision for brighter future Plans are underway to regenerate and upgrade Radcliffe town centre EXECUTIVE TRAVEL AT A GREAT PRICE 01204 61166 07740 351199 www.travelbestway.co.uk BESTWAY MINIBUSES AND COACHES • Used cameras, lenses and photographic equipment • Vintage film cameras to digital cameras • Nikon, Pentax, Leica, Olympus, Minolta, Canon, Rolleiflex etc. • Collection available & Cash waiting Call Steve on 07980 625425 or 0161 948 2784 CAMERAS WANTED
