Safe overnight stops for Motorhomes

We travel all over this country watching and writing about pantomimes usually over Christmas. It is a real challenge to park and find places to stay overnight, I contact councils in the towns or cities we are visiting and they have been most helpful. We have now joined CAMpRA (Campaign for Real Aires UK) Please […]

disjointed town

I have lived in Crewe all my life, it was a thriving market town with lots of shops, I know things have changed over the years regarding retail shopping but the town is so disjointed, the centre is a long way from the railway station, Mill Street and Edleston Road have nothing to offer, Mill […]

Parks and entertainment

We need more green parks with small skate parks around, little fountains for kids and.. adults to chill when it is hot, friendly places for everyone. The only thing I see around build are houses. But we need places to relax and entertain with families and friends..

Crewe youth club

The old mirion street youth club which burnt down should be redeveloped. Fantastic club years ago with great land available with access to the razza. With other sporting venues in the area this really be a youth hub.

Sports activities and park seating

We need more sports areas for young people (soccer and basketball courts) installed in all spaces and green areas. We also need benches in parks and green areas for older people to be able to go for a walk and have a place to sit and sunbathe, talk, observe and enjoy young people and children […]

Regeneration

Regenerate the town centre, look at what will work like adding more accommodation to make it work in changing times. Parking and access needs sorting as this causes issues and allowing people to visit an hour or two for free will help those shops that are there compete with out of town shopping people don’t […]

Indoor skatepark

As an adult who drives my kids all over to go to indoor skateparks, I see how good they are for our kids and youth of today. I’ve never encountered any trouble, just kids wanting to better themselves & have fun. Benefits: exercise, keeping kids off the street, working together, new friendships, mental health, allowing […]

Park Keepers/Wardens

I would like to see the return of park Keepers; to keep the spaces for our young children looking nice and feeling safe and somewhere to be proud of. I believe that instilling pride in the younger generation will help to regenerate the community spirit in the town. It will also help to drive down […]

Town centre

Revive the town centre. It’s an absolute ghost town at the moment: empty shop after empty shop. There are plans for improvements to the town centre but there needs to be a guarantee that the shops will actually be filled. If not it will just be a repeat of the ‘improvements’ in Northwich.

Town centre re-vamp

The town centre was Crewe’s icon maybe 10 years ago. Recent times it is now derelict of both people and businesses. Out of respect of the original elderly of Crewe they would much appreciate a big investment into the town centre. And partnered with this, new builds for the younger generation will bring in more […]

Transport

A free bus service linking two centre, retail park and the railway station. This service should operate as two circular services one in each direction. Reduce business rates to a realistic level to encourage new shops. Free parking at all town centre car parks. Improve all local bus services,both in frequency and reliability.

So much potential!

Improve the area between station and town centre, mill Street and Edlestone road. Loads of potential for coffee shops, bars etc on this bit. Maybe subsidised transport between train station and town centre. Desperately needs new housing or significant improvement to current housing stock. Manage the guzzling up of properties by investors. Make more of […]

Develop the town centre

Bring Crewe town centre back to life! Clothing stores, bars, restaurants needed… look at the surrounding areas around Crewe, bring those people to Shop, dine and socialise in the town centre. We have great train links, we have a medical university, Bentley, rail museum. We need to support those! Also to look at developing somewhere […]

Jobs/opportunities for artists

The worst thing about this place is the lack of opportunities, the council should be doing more to provide jobs/ work opportunities for everyone especially young people. The streets are grey and look like rubbish, they should employ artists to brighten the place up, maybe a designated grafitti wall so kids have somewhere to express […]

Town/ pothole/ entertainment

Town needs to be revamped Potholes need fixing And more entertainment need introducing i.e the bowling alley got closed noing for the kids aged 5+ to do anything it’s a boring old town More diversity need to be introduced in business perspective for example shisha loung, and other shops which larger city’s have and do […]

Potholes

Potholes are everywhere in Crewe. Let’s address this problem by using the fund to invest in quality, long lasting repairs to our roads.

Shopping centre

A multi story shopping centre would be great including physical entertainments like a quazar and arcade lots of fun things and great shops to draw people in from other towns. Crewe has plenty of accomodation already in the process of being built. Entertainment and great shops would be a hit for the town. The people […]

Redecorate

I understand the necessity for housing however the town centre is a mess. Its like a ghost down. Speaking to people from Crewe the town centre needs to be knocked down and rebuilt. Bring in more buyers to go mainstream shopping rather than a billion pound lands. Also the streets need a deep clean.

Regeneration

Sadly if all the shops that are in crewe retail park were in town it would be thriving……need to ask why this happens with out of town developments, number one is always free parking!! Convert empty buildings into low cost housing, attract niche business and eateries.

Move the Train Station

A big reason the town centre is dying is the lack of footfall. People aren’t interested in visiting a town like Crewe on a day out if they have to walk over a mile from the station to arrive at the high street. Places like Nantwich, Lincoln, Leeds and Liverpool all have a much closer […]

New way

Apart from food, most shop on line. This is never going to change. Therefore make the centre of Crewe an entertainment site. Consult with Crewe Alex about siting a 4g football complex. Cinema complex, ice skating, ski centre, and other such like hubs to compliment the existing excellent lifestyle centre. Nantwich road shops turned into […]

Clean up

The areas that are not covered by the major development could benefit from a clean up, sort the paving and get some local produce being sold rather than vape shops mobile phone shops and cheap card shops. Something that might help people to live better and give some honest folk the chance to build a […]

New Roads

The Road conditions in this area are like a Third World country worse than Staffordshire, Shropshire and Cheshire West they are dangerous especially to cyclists trying to keep fit and healthy. If the government wants to reduce the burden on the NHS maybe start with creating safe roads so people can feel safe on a […]

Carpark and shops

We should have a multi story carpark 3 or 4 storys with 100 plus parking . Behind Dunelm mill and home and bargain. And all shops should be 2 or 3 story’s high and have shop on ground and flats above them . We could all so turn the old library into a hotel or […]

Move the town centre.

The current town centre is in the wrong place and shops have been largely moved to the retail park. So accept defeat and move the centre formally to Macon Way, and built houses and leisure spaces n the empty space that’s left. And then ensure that public transport is improved as it’s rubbish, resulting in […]

Sort the town centre and transport

There is no change of getting a bus easily here as there are so many operators with different websites. They need to get together to have one central timetable that is accessible online. The town centre is terrible. Dreadful parking, hardly any shops. An indoor mall style would probably be better as you can still […]

Clubs for teenagers

Kids aged 12 and above don’t really have much to do or anywhere to go. To prevent antisocial behaviour they could do with more clubs to attend rather than hanging round street corners.

Do it all again…

First of all this town is a mixture of everything. Old falling apart buildings mixed with the modern flats apartments, old churches that should be restored on the same street with warehouse looking, crappy shops. The streets are a mess, one hole on top of another, cars trying to get through that maze along praying […]

Railway History

The money needs to be spent in changing the town into small businesses, eating and drinking places, with housing above. The town needs to reflect the history of the railways. As most of the history of the town has now been knocked down. Lovely old buildings gone to make way for boring buildings which no […]

Make the town centre and retail park work alongside each other

Improved connectivity between town centre and retail park to increase pedestrian traffic and reduce vehicle movement. Regenerate town centre to complement retail park and provide different offering. Use a start up ‘business rates holiday’ to reduce burdens on new businesses and encourage investment in the town centre. Improve transport links by sorting out the bus […]

Safety

Invest more in CCTV. Crewe is not really safe place, especially after dark. More surveillance in Valley Park and Nantwich Road.

Regeneration & infrastructure

We really need to improve the town centre, desperately. Many years ago it was a place many people came to shop it’s sad to see it in the state that it’s in today. There’s so many empty units and it looks messy and dirty. I am aware that parts of the town centre are being […]

Parking

Charging high prices to park to go anywhere near town needs to be scrapped until the town is fully re-developed.

Social interaction not housing

Crewe doesn’t need a town centre replaced with housing. What it needs is a place where people can interact. Online shopping has killed small towns like Crewe but why should we spend our hard earned cash in big successful cities? Open the space to young or ambitious LOCAL entrepreneurs so they can help bring social […]

Ice Rink

I suggest an ice rink as it is a long drive to any existing ice rinks and the opportunities such a facility brings to the residents are numerous. I suggest a proper arena sized ice rink big enough for major competition and hockey tournaments. The building could also contain a restaurant, kit shop etc climbing […]

Integrated transport system.

Cheap regular bus service and routes moving people around. Especially a connection from railway to town centre say every 10 mins. Making a bus station new and usable to all. Safer cycling and walking routes. We need cheap rents in the new market hall. We need the heritage of Crewe to be recognised. We need […]

Infrastructure and parking

Getting into town at the weekend is nearly impossible. There needs to be a better strategy on people movement. Instead of adding traffic lights everywhere, a couple of pedestrian tunnels instrategic places would help traffic flow better, reducing congestion and air pollution. As the main train station is away from the town centre, builds a […]

Town Centre

Rebuild the town centre, in particular the area where the bus station is as it now all lies abandoned. Shopping Plaza would be perfect with shops and diners.

Suitable For Upgrade

Initially I’d like to see small changes that help instil pride in our town. A real overhaul, a huge clean-up operation, weeding, planting, cleaning litter and gum up, road repairs, and encouraging local businesses (large and small) to invest a little in making the main roads in, out and around Crewe look attractive and appealling […]

Build on the positive

Many people are negative about Crewe but there are lots of positive things to build on. I grew up in Liverpool and have seen it change from a negative, depressed city into a thriving, positive city (because money was invested in the river front and the shopping centre). Crewe can too! 3 positives I see […]

Youth centre

More youth centres too keep the young occupied. This could reduce crime within the area as youngsters have nothing too do within crewe and no where to go which most of the time resorts in them getting into trouble.

Mental Health

Better shops and faster internet

More shops would be a great start as the shops now are all broaded up and no shops open. We been promised for about 10 years the town centre would be improved i believe it when i see it. Get it sorted!!!! Also faster internet with speeds of up to 300mpbs or 500mbps would be […]

Tipkinder skate park

Clean, rejuvenate and make it safer. Due to the skate park being neglected, it has become dangerous for younger kids which means they go out and make trouble. Ghost riders club have taken over the skate park and the bmx track, locking the PUBLIC toilets and only letting club members use the track toilets. They […]

Raising standards

Crewe could benefit from designer shops and fine dining experiences, it would give people a reason to visit the town and bring in revenue. Also drop the parking charges, nobody wants to pay to visit a run down town. Pot holes need sorting out too, the standards of road surfaces here a sub par.

Infrastructure improvements

With HS2 scheduled at some stage the current train station will be upgraded as part of that project. However the roads around the station are insufficient to handle the volumes of traffic. Other roads around the Hospital and Bentley are also in need of review to improve traffic movements. Hospital also requires parking as it’s […]

Invest in Crewe’s nightlife

For years Crewe’s night life has been none existent. Nothing to do in the town centre beyond rough local pubs, of which none are open late. No bars on Nantwich road are open past 12, even on a weekend (Friday or Saturday). Investing in the nightlife would build on sense of community, give people something […]

Infrastructure

We’ve seen an influx of housing developments throughout Crewe and what were neighboring villages since the governments last push to increase housing. There needs to be some careful consideration for now and the future of the infrastructure, including the quality of the roads but the capacity of the local doctor surgeries and schools. The towns […]

Crewe revamp

The library building should be used for something else, it should be relocated. The building could be used to try and link the town centre with the retail park. In Liverpool they have a ghetto golf place which is great fun, where adults can have a drink and food whilst playing crazy golf. It is […]

Town Centre / Public Transport

Town centre definitely needs some renovation, old worn out buildings and lots of closed shops. Maybe a focus on events, culture, sport, and a nicer, greener town square? Also I’d like to see more investment in busses, particularly new routes from the outer Crewe area into town centre/train station.

The roads are awful it’s like dodge the pot hole. Sick of seeing the holes that’s filled repaired badly with a small bit of tarmac stuffed in.

Modernisation

Crewe has experienced Urban decline in keeping with the national trend of decline. However, Crewe is set to benefit from the HS2 hub being built making Crewe a convenient location for Crewe. The danger is, its locale will merely be that of a convenient geographical base for people. The decentralisation of retail from the town […]

Rub it out & start again

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). […]
