Expressions of Interest are sought by Crewe Town Council for the development of a Conservation Management Plan for the Railway Cottages of Dorfold Street, Betley Street and Tollitt Street, Crewe.
The Railway Cottages are important survivals from the town’s early settlement. Crewe Town Council is supporting the Railway Cottages Residents Association to develop a heritage strategy and initial development plan through the delivery of a Conservation Management Plan for the forty-nine cottages.
The Railway Cottages were constructed in 1845 as a second phase of housing for the Railway Company’s workforce. Designed by John Cunningham, who had previously designed Liverpool Lime Street Station, the cottages were constructed by the Birmingham company Messers G Branson and E Gwyther. In the early 1970s the cottages were threatened with demolition but were saved through a local campaign which resulted in them being renovated after they were awarded Grade II Listed Building status.
