Parish (Council) Notice

The latest reorganisation of Local Government has left Crewe without a local council – the area is now part of Cheshire East, along with Macclesfield and Congleton. So there has been a move to establish a Town Council, not unlike that in neighbouring Nantwich. The petition in support of this move gained more than enough signatures for the issue to be put to a vote.

So everyone in the Crewe area should by now have received a “Voting Paper for Electors”, along with a reply paid envelope (alternatively, the envelope can be delivered direct to Municipal Buildings or Delamere House, if preferred). I’d advise anyone in possession of a Voting Paper to cast a vote, whatever their opinion or preference.

A positive vote for a single Town Council would, apparently, involve an X next to Question 1, choice 1 (I want a parish council for my area), and also an X next to Question 2, choice A (A single town council for the whole of the unparished area of Crewe).

But, ultimately, interpretation and choice are down to the individual voter. I do hope that as many as possible take part in the process.
