We recently launched the Water Street development in Radcliffe. The new development which received funding support from Homes England, provides 19 one and two-bedroom homes for affordable rent to meet the growing demand in the area. Built to the latest eco-friendly standards, the homes benefit from efficient air source heat pumps which cost less to run than traditional heating systems and use less energy and are better for the environment.
To mark the occasion, we invited representatives from the Council, Homes England, and the contractor Mangrove Estates to view the fantastic new homes and meet some of the new residents.
Bury is a priority area for us, having recently completed two other affordable developments in the borough. This latest development comes hot of the heals of 19 new affordable homes at Lowther Park, Prestwich, and five eco-homes on Siddall Street in Radcliffe.

Councillor Clare Cummins, Bury Council’s cabinet member for housing services, said: “Our housing strategy aims to ensure that there are enough properties across Bury to cater for all household types: single people, families, elderly and disabled people. We are delighted to be working with Irwell Valley, and to see new homes being built on brownfield sites and to high eco-standards.”
