Make a Difference in Your Local Community


People in Crewe and Nantwich are being invited to find out more about key issues which affect their communities.

Two public events are to be held in each town which will throw the spotlight on green spaces and highways respectively.

The Area Assembly meetings are organised by the Local Area Partnership (LAP), which bring together a range of partners with a shared goal of delivering improved outcomes for individual communities.

The Nantwich meeting will offer people an insight into the challenges of managing and maintaining Cheshire East’s 1,700-mile road network.

It will take place on Thursday, December 2, from 6-8pm at Crewe Vagrants Sports Club in Newcastle Road, Willaston.

The Crewe meeting will focus on a range of topics associated with parks and green spaces, including allotment schemes and the restoration of Queens Park.

It will be held on Monday, December 6, from 6-8.30pm at Crewe Alexandra Football Club in Gresty Road.

The LAP partners include Cheshire East Council, Cheshire Police, Cheshire Fire & Rescue Service, town and parish councils, housing associations, health and education providers and the community and voluntary sectors.

Councillor Rachel Bailey, Cabinet member with responsibility for safer and stronger communities, said: “Area Assemblies are open to anyone who has an interest in making their local community a better place to live.

“They offer people the opportunity to find out more about the work of the LAP and to tell us about community matters and concerns.

“Crucially, they give local residents the power to influence issues which are important to them, underpinning our commitment to giving the people of Cheshire East more choice and control about services and resources.

“I urge the people of Crewe and Nantwich not to miss this opportunity to play their part in improving their neighbourhood.”

Area Assembly meetings are held quarterly. Further information about LAPs and Area Assemblies can be found on the Council’s website
