One of Nantwich's major buildings, which will be very familiar to Audlem Online readers, is now under the ownership of Nantwich Town Council.
As part of Cheshire East Council's programme of transfer and devolution of assets and services — a programme that started with Audlem's public toilets — Nantwich Civic Hall will now be managed and maintained by Nantwich Town Council.
Efforts are now under way to complete the remainder of agreed transfers, such as Nantwich Market Hall and some of the town's allotment sites, in a phased fashion.
Audlem's councillor Rachel Bailey and Cheshire East cabinet member said: "We are pleased to note that Nantwich Town Council is taking a sensible, phased approach to the handover of assets and services.
"These are major buildings and features of the town and all handovers must be carefully handled.
"I am confident that Nantwich Civic Hall will be successfully managed by the town council and we believe it is best placed to run the facility for the benefit of the people of Nantwich."
Nantwich town councillors voted to also take charge of the indoor and outdoor markets and the public toilets in the market, in Barony Park and on Snow Hill car park. Allotment sites are also being passed to the town council.
