Council consults Crewe residents over link road

Cheshire East Council is urging residents to put forward their views on a project that aims to shape the future of the south Cheshire town.

A three week pre-planning application consultation for the proposed Crewe Green link road ends on Friday 27 May, which the council said is a key component in the All Change for Crewe project.

Three consultation events have already been held but residents can still visit the Cheshire East website here and fill in a questionnaire.

Caroline Simpson, head of regeneration at Cheshire East, said: "It is very important that people have the opportunity to make comments and to find out more about this scheme.

"This is why we are reminding residents that there is still time for those who have not yet commented to make sure their thoughts are known.

"This is a major project which is key to the future economic prosperity of Crewe."

The link road would create an alternate bypass for Crewe, improving access to the A500 and M6 motorway and alleviating traffic passing through the town.

The council added that it hoped the link road will unlock the potential of two employment sites at Basford and facilitate the creation of new jobs over the next 20 years.

Basford East and West is a combined total development opportunity of 370 acres.

A planning application for the road will be submitted once the consultation period has been completed.

The All Change for Crewe plan was prepared by consultants SQW which is development framework aimed at attracting investment to the south Cheshire town.
