Investing in Cheshire and Warrington

All Change for Crewe

Over recent years Crewe has successfully grown and diversified its economy with, for example, completion of Crewe Business Park developments and the growth of Manchester Metropolitan University Campus. Recently success has been counterbalanced by the economic recession and delays to the town centre redevelopment.

Cheshire East has identified Crewe as its biggest spatial priority and has developed an ambitious strategy to support Crewe’s economic development over the next 20 years.
