Welcome to the Madeley Village Website

This site aims to collect all of the village information together in one easy to find reference, as well as providing a place for the village news and events to be posted!

About Madeley

Madeley is a village just inside Staffordshire, between Crewe and Newcastle-under-Lyme, and is on the border between Staffordshire and Cheshire (and close to the Shropshire border too!)  It is closest to Newcastle-under-Lyme, and is within the Staffordshire council area and with Stoke-on-Trent area codes (01782), yet it has Crewe (CW3) postcodes!

Madeley Manor Development

There are proposals to develop the old Madeley Manor into a number of 3+4 storey apartment blocks, to provide 52 apartments.

While development of the existing buildings which used to be a care home is reasonable, there are a range of reasons why this development as it is proposed may be a problem.

Newcastle-under-Lyme Borough Council have an objection page for you to note down your comments.

Some objections and details have been provided in a document you can download and print here (ideal if you need to share with someone without internet access.)
