Cheshire East Council is considering plans to revitalise Crewe town centre, which include the redevelopment of the Royal Arcade site, refurbishment of the Market Hall, and investment into public realm.

The proposals represent £48.3m of investment in total. A report to cabinet that is due to go before members on 12 September 2017 seeks to enter into a development agreement with Peveril Securities, part of the Bowmer and Kirkland Group, and its development manager Cordwell Property Group to transform the Royal Arcade site and create a mixed-use leisure and retail scheme.

The proposed development is expected to include a new eight-screen cinema, gym, restaurants and shops. It would also feature a new bus station and 450-space multi-storey car park, both of which would be funded and owned by Cheshire East Council.

Don Stockton, Cheshire East Council cabinet member for regeneration, said: “Following consultation with residents in 2015, we’ve been working with cabinet members, local members and officers to bring together proposals which will transform Crewe town centre. It’s essential that Crewe becomes better placed to benefit from all that HS2 can bring, as well as deliver the ambitious economic growth targets outlined in the emerging Constellation Growth Strategy for the sub-region.”
