STRAG was formed in January, 2017 after the attempt by the current owner/developers of The Radcliffe to demolish the pub and impose change of use into residential flats upon the Community. The application to do this was submitted to NHDC Planning in November of 2016 (application number 16/02888/1).

After receiving 166 objections, and not one letter of support, the owner/developers withdrew their hugely unpopular application. STRAG now exists to give a voice to the Community about the future of The Radcliffe. We will work to enact our agreed 9 Point Charter  on an ongoing basis and use the many resources at our disposal to prevent any unwanted development or change of use ever coming to The Radcliffe.

The STRAG website aims to be a centralised resource for information, documentation, links and strategic action as well as a way to cohesively represent the Community to decision makers regarding The Radcliffe such as NHDC Planning, local Councillors, Community and the press.
