Local List Project
The Cheshire Local List is a collaboration between Cheshire West and Chester, Cheshire East and Halton Boroughs. Work on this website and a number of pilot studies across the county, are being undertaken with funding from the Ministry for Housing, Communities and Local Government.
Local heritage plays an essential role in creating and reinforcing a sense of local character and distinctiveness in the historic environment, and is an important part of the developing community identity.
We are asking residents to identify places and buildings (non-listed) within the Nantwich boundary that they feel are part of Nantwich’s character and attraction, which should be included on the list. If you have any suggestions, please drop them on a message to us below:
Let us have your thoughts – please let us know which places and buildings make Nantwich, Nantwich.
Other Consultations In Our Area
CHESHIRE POLICE & CRIME COMMISSIONER – Stakeholder Special – Budget Consultation 2022/23
At this time of year, Police and Crime Commissioners must consult with the public and other stakeholders on the proposed police budget and precept for the coming financial year. The Cheshire Police and Crime Commissioner has set out priorities for the budget, proposal for the precept, and a short survey for people to give their views here.
This budget has been developed following feedback from the public since he took office back in May, along with clear trends that have been identified in the preliminary results of my Autumn Survey, which was the largest consultation ever carried out by Cheshire’s Police and Crime Commissioner with over 18,000 responses.
This budget will put 120 more officers on Cheshire’s streets, increasing visible policing and taking us closer to the goal set by the Commissioner and the Chief Constable to have the highest establishment of officers in Cheshire in modern times – 2,345. It will also put 63 more frontline staff in departments like the Force Control Centre, where we’ll have more call handlers waiting to reduce response times and help people in their hour of need.
There will also be an increased focus on tackling anti-social behaviour that can often make people feel unsafe in their community, and further action on making our county’s roads safer.
To support this, the proposal I am putting to residents is for an increase in the police precept of approximately 83p per month for the average Band D property.
It is crucial that, like in my Autumn Survey, I get the views of as many people from as many communities as possible across Cheshire, covering all characteristics of age, ethnic background, gender, sexuality and disability.
CHESHIRE CONSTABULARY HELPDESK CONSULTATION
Cheshire Constabulary is asking for the public’s feedback on plans to have helpdesks at five police stations across the county. Currently there are 16 helpdesks which have varying opening hours over five to seven days a week, but many are seldom used. Take part in the survey now. The closing date for responses is 27 March 2022.
BARONY MASTER PLAN
We have been working with Nantwich Town Council, the Friends of the Barony and Nantwich in Bloom to develop a master plan of ideas for the future of the Barony. The plan is aspirational at this point but your input will help us to identify the priorities of the local community so we can focus our fundraising accordingly.
Email us at Parks@ansa.co.uk if you would like to share your priorities, views and ideas. The masterplan can be viewed on Cheshire East’s website.
2023 BOUNDARY REVIEW

HS2 Phase 2B Crewe - Manchester
On 24 January, the government introduced the High Speed Rail (Crewe – Manchester) Bill into Parliament to secure the powers to construct and maintain HS2 Phase 2b, between Crewe in Cheshire and Manchester.
The extension of the high speed network to Manchester will free up capacity on the congested West Coast Main Line and deliver significant connectivity, reliability and journey time benefits for passengers.
The Bill grants the powers to:
- build and maintain HS2 and its associated works
- compulsorily acquire interests in the land required
- affect or change rights of way, including the stopping-up or diversion of highways and waterways (permanently or temporarily)
- modify infrastructure belonging to statutory undertakers (e.g. utility companies)
- carry out work on listed buildings and demolish buildings in conservation areas
- carry out protective works to buildings and third-party infrastructure
- make necessary changes to existing legislation to facilitate construction and operation of HS2
It also grants the necessary changes to existing legislation to facilitate construction and operation of the HS2 Phase 2b (Crewe – Manchester) scheme.
More information about the bill with associated documents and plans can be found on the Government Website or alternatively please call into our offices at Nantwich Civic Hall, where you can use one of our computers to access the documents.
Public Conveniences Consultation
Nantwich Town Council invited its residents, local businesses and visitors to take part in and complete a short survey on whether there should be investment at the former Snowhill site to re-introduce public conveniences. The site is located on Snowhill car park, Waterlode, Nantwich and for those unfamiliar with the location can view the sites proximity to the Town Centre on the map.
At Finance Committee on 25th November Members considered a report and survey results for the Public Conveniences survey. The Clerk highlighted some of the main responses including the positive response to the refurbishment of Snowhill, and the requirement for Sunday opening of public conveniences.
It was resolved that the re-introduction of toilets at Snowhill to be taken to the next stage of design and feasibility. We will endeavor to keep residents informed of progress.
May 2019 was a significant month for Nantwich Town Council with the local elections and a fresh Council featuring five new Councillors. A new Mayor and Deputy Mayor of the Council were elected. Alongside all this the new Town Clerk, Samantha Roberts, joined the Council in September 2019.
During the months that followed we began developing the Corporate Strategic Plan for the next three years.
We opened a public consultation process on the draft Corporate Strategic Plan with key stakeholders and the local community, as it was important that your views were considered and incorporated within the document.
Consultation responses have now been received and included in the plan, and the final version including the amendments will be published in due course.
The three-year corporate plan has five key Core Priorities and the overarching vision of ‘making Nantwich an even better place’.
