Major Infrastructure Projects and Investments

Crewe Market Hall 640x426


Crewe will be revitalised: a special place shaped by its engineering and railway heritage, established as the urban heart of the area it serves, and confident about its future.

Crewe will be known across the UK as an industrious, creative and pioneering place of opportunity – a story shared by its skilled and hard-working communities and the many new residents it has attracted who will call it home.

Crewe's growing population and location as one of the best connected areas in the north of England make it a magnet for new businesses. Investment in transport and energy infrastructure will drive progress towards a zero-carbon town.   

Crewe will benefit from a £100 million+ regeneration investment that began in 2016 and will comprise over 20 projects. To find out more information on Crewe's completed projects and future projects, such as the 'Repurposing our High Streets Programme', visit We Are All Crewe.


The Macclesfield Town Centre regeneration framework sets a vision for a ‘town that celebrates its quirkiness’, identifies seven ‘character areas’ and a spatial framework for all those interested in investing in and supporting the future of the town. Working together with stakeholders who are passionate about their area, visible changes are happening that reflect the vitality of the town and surrounding areas.

Out of the town centre, Macclesfield benefits from its proximity to the centre of excellence at Alderley Park. It is close to Manchester Airport and the surrounding rural areas have proved to be ripe picking for companies such as Forest Gin, Winkle Beer Company and Crag Spring Water.
