Great Places

Great Places Housing Group  is a long-standing partner of Bury Council. We’ve developed hundreds of homes across the region for rent and shared ownership as well as collaborating with the council to renovate older properties.  

Recent developments in Bury include 32 bungalows, 14 apartments and a day-care centre in Ramsbottom and 11 bungalows at St Mary’s Court in Prestwich. Both schemes were designed specifically for the over-55s. Phase two of a development scheme at Tulle Court in Prestwich will culminate in the provision of 18 much-needed three-bedroom family homes.   Great Places will continue to work closely with Bury Council to provide much needed quality affordable housing and create new communities across the borough.  


The Adactus Housing Group is a North West based registered provider with over 13,000 homes in management across 25 local authorities and employs approximately 650 staff.  Adactus works with several external agencies, voluntary organisations and charities throughout the North West to provide care, support and accommodation for people with varying needs.  The Group operates a number of supported housing projects providing support for the homeless, support for young mothers and their babies and support for people with disabilities.  

The Group is a Homes and Communities Agency Partner currently developing more than 500 homes a year and a development pipeline of 2,000 homes after securing one of the biggest national HCA allocations in the 2015-18 bidding round. This makes Adactus the second biggest developer in the North West and the eighth biggest outside of London.  

Making a substantial contribution to the local economy, the Group uses its social investment fund to invest in excess of £900k into neighbourhoods by 2018.   In the 2015 Housing Association National Accountancy Awards (HANA) Awards, the Adactus Housing Group was crowned the winner for Achieving Best Value for Money. In July 2015 the Adactus Housing Group became one of the few UK social housing providers to achieve the Carbon Trust Waste Standard.
