Students have their say on town’s future
7:30am Wednesday 17th October 2012 in News
COLLEGE students were given the chance to shape Crewe’s future through a consultation scheme which is being rolled out by Cheshire East Council.
Students were asked what improvements they would make to Crewe and how they would like to see the town look in 2030.
The group wore bright orange T-shirts to promote the initiative and handed out ‘How Will Your Town Look in 2030?’ postcards which gave students who shared their views the opportunity to win a pair of Alton Towers tickets.
They are also visiting other organisations across Cheshire to help shape the future of other towns including Nantwich, Macclesfield, Handforth, Knutsford and Poynton.
Ideas will help to form Cheshire East Council’s new Local Plan which will form the basis of planning decisions until 2030.
It will play a key part in delivering Cheshire East Council’s ambitious plans for the future setting out where new homes should be built, employment should be located and how the physical and social infrastructure will support new development.
Clr Michael Jones, leader of Cheshire East Council, said: “Many people have seen controversial site allocation outlines.
“Instead of opposing things, I want to hear people say what they support and what they want to see happen in their communities.”
