Chester Residents’ Associations Group (CRAG) is an umbrella community organisation based in the historic city of Chester in Cheshire, UK.

Formed in 2019, CRAG comprises of over 20 residents’ groups from within – and nearby – the city walls. We welcome new members, because our voice and influence are stronger together.

Our mission? To make Chester an even better place to live, work and visit. We aim to do this through active citizenship and positive partnership.

Working with local stakeholders, CRAG is developing strategies and proposals to help address the top five issues identified by our members:-

  • Communication

  • Traffic management and parking
  • Public realm
  • One City Plan
