All change for Crewe

Train arriving at Crewe railway stationCrewe occupies a strategic position on the southern boundary of the North West Region, located as it is, astride the west coast mainline and close to junction 16 of the M6.

Recent discussions have highlighted the significance of Crewe in the region and the opportunity for Cheshire East to show leadership by demonstrating its true potential for the North West economy. The future of Crewe will have a major role to play in the continued growth of the North West as key decisions are made nationally about transport infrastructure investments and regionally in terms of the Regional Economic Strategy. The Cheshire and Warrington Enterprise Commission and partner sub-regional authorities also see Crewe as a major focus for sub-regional investment.

Over recent years Crewe has successfully grown and diversified its economy with, for example, completion of Crewe Business Park developments and the growth of Manchester Metropolitan University Campus. Recently success has been counterbalanced by the economic recession and delays to the town centre redevelopment.

Cheshire East has identified Crewe as its biggest spatial priority and has developed an ambitious strategy to support Crewe’s economic development over the next 20 years.
