JEFF Stubbs is Chairman of Nantwich Civic Society and Greenspaces South Cheshire CIC. Now he taken on a new Chairmanship. That of the Nantwich Partnership, as he explains in this Press Release.

 

 

 

REPRESENTATIVES from Nantwich Town Council, Nantwich Civic Society, Cheshire East Council and business and tourism have joined together to create a new town partnership.

   This fully constituted body will work together to improve the public realm of Nantwich Town Centre, so that it will be a sustainable town, with a strong sense of place characterised by its links to open spaces and its historic character.

   Nantwich Civic Society has previously conducted a review of the town centre streets which revealed that, while Nantwich has the most listed buildings of any Cheshire town (apart from Chester), the quality of its streets and spaces are showing greater signs of wear and tear  compared to other places. 

    In order for people to stay or shop in our town, it has to be a pleasure as well as provide the goods that people want. A good environment can provide the right surroundings for businesses to exploit and keep on trading.

   Working with local businesses and other key stakeholders, Nantwich

 

 

Partnership will now begin work on a Public Realm Strategy for Nantwich, which will identify key actions to implement in the short term alongside a five-year improvement plan.  We will be aiming to lever in substantial amounts of funding. 

   Councillor Peter Groves, who represents Cheshire East Council on the Partnership and is also the Local Area Partnership Champion, said, "This initiative will enable a clear focus on Nantwich and drive forward much-needed change. We have the support of the Leader of Cheshire East Council and will actively use all opportunities to benefit the residents and visitors to our beautiful town."

l Successful Town Partnerships already operate in Sandbach, Middlewich, Alsager, Congleton and Holmes Chapel, and have been able to attract large sums of funding to make improvements.
