Work has officially started on Bury's first purpose-built supported living development designed for adults with learning and physical disabilities to live as independent a life as possible in Radcliffe. The first sod of ground was cut today by Councillor Sharon Briggs JP, Deputy Mayor of Bury Council, during the ground breaking ceremony for the project.
Canalside Gardens, on Whittaker Street, is a £2.3 million development consisting of 14 apartments which have been designed in partnership with Inclusion Housing CIC and Lifeways Community Care. They are being delivered by specialist supported living developer HB Villages.
The new development will provide a safe environment for local adults with learning and physical disabilities allowing them to live independently and give them the freedom to manage their own home, budgets and lifestyle with support as and when required.
Councillor Sharon Briggs JP, Deputy Mayor of Bury Council, was joined by all partners involved in the project to celebrate the work starting on this progressive scheme.
