An update on the former RADCO site has been provided by Radstock Co-operative Society’s CEO, Don Morris.

Mr Morris informed members at the Society’s AGM on June 11 regarding the redevelopment plans.

As had previously been announced in June 2023, the planning permission granted by B&NES Council is not viable in its current form and the society has been undergoing a process to bring forward amended plans with a development partner and registered housing provider.

The commitment remains to provide a sustainable mixed-use scheme, on the same site, which will include a new retail store and office space that will provide new headquarter offices for the society, as well as new residential homes. The society will provide further details for the site in due course.

Meanwhile, the society is thrilled to announce it is collaborating with students from Fosse Way School, who are creating artwork to enhance another section of the hoarding around the site. They are drawing inspiration from the local area and the values of Radstock Co-operative Society for their art pieces.

Radstock Co-operative Society welcomes other local groups and schools who are interested in contributing to the artwork to get in touch. For further information, please contact: [email protected].
