11,000 people have had their say – now have YOURS


With just a week before the deadline, Cheshire East Council is urging Crewe residents not to lose their chance to vote on a vital ballot.

People have been asked if they want a single town council in Crewe and more than 11,000 votes have been received by the Council to date.

The deadline to vote is 5pm on Wednesday, February 29 and is open to all registered voters in the unparished areas of Crewe.

Councillor Michael Jones, Cabinet member with responsibility for resources, said: “This is a very important time for Crewe, as the outcome will send a clear message to Cheshire East Council about how they would like to see the town governed going forward.

“Any decision will affect all of the town’s people and I urge everyone to make their views known and return their ballot papers without delay.”

If a town council is established, the people of Crewe will have more local representation, similar to all other areas of Cheshire East, with the exception of Macclesfield.

It could take responsibility for local services and assets, such as Crewe Market Hall, and take a leading role in shaping its future.

The people of Crewe have a choice, but if the result of the ballot is ‘no’, they will stay pay for local services in the form of a special expense levy from April 2013.
