In 2011 the Council responded to the passing of the Localism Bill by committing itself to the transfer of assets from Cheshire East. It took a conscious decision to become a more proactive Council. In May 2012 the Council took over management of Nantwich Civic Hall, Nantwich Market Hall, 4 allotment sites, Snow Hill toilets and 2 redundant toilet blocks to be used for storage.
The Council also took on responsibility for town centre management, street entertainment, tourism, CCTV and shopmobility.
The Council now has a staff complement of 14 full time staff and 2 part time staff plus a team of casual employees for bar work.
The Council will considered its budget for 2020/21 in November 2019.
It is appropriate to review how the Council might evolve in the next few years and to consider how it sees Nantwich developing physically, economically and socially. This document will provide the strategic aims to guide the Council, reviews its present functions and identifies matters to address.
