We've acquired the former Brickcroft Social Club site

We're bringing this derelict site back into use as part of the transformation of this area of Rochdale town centre as part of a well-designed neighbourhood with much-needed high quality homes.

We've taken another step towards delivering more much needed homes in Rochdale town centre by acquiring the site of the former Brickcroft Social Club on High Street.

The club announced in May 2021 that it would be closing permanently rather than re-opening as the pandemic restrictions eased, and we have now moved to make sure that the site is used for new high-quality housing rather than remaining derelict. The acquisition has been supported by funding from Rochdale Borough Council’s successful Towns Fund bid, announced last year.

We're investing millions of pounds to make sure that we can deliver the homes in Rochdale town centre that local people need and deserve. I know that many residents will have happy memories of Brickcroft Social Club, and our new homes will help a new generation of residents to create great memories on this site. We're looking forward to working with the local community to develop our plans for new homes here.

I'm really pleased that we will now be able to develop the Brickcroft site to help us build new homes as well as deliver the quality and mix of homes that local people need.

This is an important milestone, as it’s the first project of many which will be delivered using the £23.6m Towns Fund investment which we successfully bid for last year. This exciting development will support wider plans to create high quality housing, particularly on brownfield sites, and close to our thriving town centres, to support our growing population and help us attract and retain residents. This is the first of many Towns Fund supported developments which will reap huge benefits across our borough in the years to come.

The acquisition forms part of our wider plans to invest in Rochdale town centre. We also recently acquired the derelict land at the former Redcross Mill site, and we have worked with Rochdale Borough Council and Rochdale RSPCA to help Rochdale Animal Centre move to their new premises at Hollingworth Lake. These sites together will support the transformation of this area as part of a well-designed neighbourhood with much-needed high quality homes.
