November30 2011 Crewe Chronicle, by Simon Halewood
SANDBACH Town Council is set to take over the running of the Town Hall, indoor market and public toilets in a move to protect its ‘heritage and identity’.
The future of the town’s crown jewels has been in doubt because of Cheshire East’s cost-cutting plans to save money.
They are desperate to offload community facilities to town and parish authorities to reduce their overheads.
The town council has been in lengthy negotiations with Cheshire East to develop a detailed business case to support it taking on the facilities at the High Street hall. It represents a radical departure from the authority’s civic role to hands-on ownership of buildings and management.
In April, the Chronicle reported the town hall was losing just over £1,000 a week, but town councillors insist they can turn that around.
The council’s draft budget includes ‘major improvements to buildings and enhanced management of these community assets’.
Civic leaders make their final decision next Friday but it looks like a done deal.
It’s holding a public drop-in session to discuss the plans and financial implications at the Town Hall two days later (Saturday, December 10) from 10amnoon.
Project leader Cllr Vaughan Thompson (Conservative) said: “The Town Hall and the indoor and outdoor markets are integral parts of the town. Without them, we’d lose some of the town’s heritage and identity.
