The town centre varies from the vile (bus station) to the abandoned (M&S) and really needs demolished & started afresh. Start with the buildings around the bus station and move out in waves. New housing should replace shops since major retail is in Manchester or in niche shops in Nantwich (another town starting to die).
Since the 1970s Crewe has been let down by continual failed plans & schemes that get nowhere. Maybe homes not shops will put some life back into the town since retail is beginning to shrink nationally. Even the once famous station is now a bit of a joke. Rail museum?
Whatever you do: shops, entertainment, homes or even all the above please carry the plan through from paper to reality. Key is to demolish the bus station and work from there outwards.
