In April 2015 the Council published its draft ‘Town Centre Regeneration Delivery Framework for Growth’, which sets out a vision for Crewe town centre and identifies how key sites could be brought forward for redevelopment.
The Framework outlines how the town centre can be transformed alongside new investments in the town centre, including the new Lifestyle Centre and the University Technical College which will both open in 2016.
Crewe town centre and the Royal Arcade
In April 2015 the Council acquired the Royal Arcade site which includes the bus station and 26 retail units along Queensway and Victoria Street.
Options for redeveloping part of the Royal Arcade site could include additional leisure attractions such as a new larger cinema, restaurants, a hotel, car parking and a remodelled bus interchange.
The Council has committed to reviewing car parking pricing and strategy in Crewe town centre to encourage more people to visit shops and businesses and help create a more vibrant town centre.
