Governance review to be held in Crewe


The people of Crewe will soon be asked if they would like a town council.

It is the second time the idea will have been considered after it was rejected following a ballot of the people of the town in January last year.

Following a meeting of Cheshire East Council’s constitution committee, councillors voted to support a review of the unparished areas of Crewe.

A sub-committee, which will conduct the review, is currently being formed and is expected to begin its work in July.

It will be tasked with looking at the best way to secure the views of local people. The review will seek to ensure that future arrangements for Crewe reflect the interests and identities of the community.

Councillor Wesley Fitzgerald, Leader of Cheshire East Council, said: “This is a very important topic for the people of Crewe and they will soon be faced with the question – do they want a town council?

“When this happens, I would strongly encourage people living in Crewe and those with an interest in the town to make their views known.

“This authority is always open to ways to give the people of Cheshire East more choice and control over services and resources and all feedback received will be taken into consideration to ensure the decision taken reflects the wishes of the people of Crewe.”

Further information will be given on the progress of the review as it proceeds.

The constitution committee has also agreed to review governance arrangements in Macclesfield once the review for Crewe is complete.
