All Change for Crewe: Still time to have your say on shaping regeneration of the town


There are just a few days left for YOU to give YOUR views on an ambitious vision for the regeneration of Crewe.

Over the past year, consultants appointed to advise the Council, working with key stakeholders, have identified what they believe needs to be done to ‘unlock’ the huge potential of the town and surrounding area to become an economic powerhouse by 2031. This vision is called ‘All Change for Crewe’.

Cheshire East has been holding a month of public engagement events and has an online questionnaire to seek your views on what the priorities for the regeneration of Crewe should be.

And there is still time for you to play your part – before the closing date for feedback, on December 6.

The final round of public consultation events will be held at:

South Cheshire College, on Monday, November 29, from 11am to 1pm;

Crewe Railway Station, on Tuesday, November 30, from 8am to 11am;

South Cheshire College, on Wednesday, December 1, from 5.30pm to 7.30pm;

Crewe Library, on Thursday, December 2, from 2pm to 4pm.

We want you to tell us, for example:

● How important are improvements to the railway station for the revitalisation of Crewe?

● Do you think the current range of shops, leisure and other facilities in Crewe town centre can be improved?

● What is the biggest barrier to raising the aspirations of young people in Crewe?

● How can public transport provision in Crewe be improved?

● What is the best way of engaging business and residents in delivering regeneration through different projects and activities?

Councillor Jamie Macrae, Cabinet member with responsibility for prosperity, said: “We’ve already had an excellent response so far, with a lot of interest in how we should take these proposals forward but we are still keen to get the views of more people who live or work in Crewe or who visit the town.

“This is a tremendously important opportunity for local people to have their say and take ownership of ambitious moves to regenerate and revitalise their town and the surrounding area – building on the hard work of the Council and its partners over the past year.

“Our ambition is to unlock Crewe’s tremendous potential for future growth and prosperity – but we all need to get behind this project to make it happen.”

The Council is working with key stakeholders and partners to help turn the town and surrounding area into a leading player in Britain’s 21st century economy.

Consultants have identified how the Council and other partner agencies can unlock what they see as the unique potential of Crewe over the next 20 years.

A revamped Crewe train station and town centre and the completion of the Crewe Green Link Road will be at the heart of several major projects planned to revitalise Crewe and the surrounding region.

Attracting more educated, skilled and ambitious workers to Crewe would boost the economy and be central to plans for the town to become a dynamic regional centre by 2031. The aim is to increase the economy by £850m per year by 2031.
