More money for Crewe town centre

ct-Crewe town centreCheshire East Council and Crewe Town Council have agreed to jointly invest a total of £120,000 to help enhance the visual appeal of Crewe’s shopping areas and fund two new town centre-based roles.

The plans have the support of local councillors from both authorities, as well as Crewe Town Centre Working Group, which the two councils are members of.

The creation of a town centre project officer post will be for an initial two-year period. The officer will lead on the day-to-day coordination of initiatives and activities which enhance the offer of the town centre and will also play a key role in building strong links with businesses already active in the town centre.

In addition, a ‘handyperson’ role will be created within Ansa – one of the council’s arm’s-length companies – and is also for an initial two-year period.

This will ensure that there is a person dedicated to working on Crewe every day, who is responsible for the general cleanliness of the town centre and the up-keep of its green spaces, highway verges and street furniture.

Additionally, around £50,000 is to be invested in replacing damaged seating, planters, bins, cycle stands and cycle repair stands, some of which will be funded through the ‘sustainable travel transition year’ initiative.
