Crewe 20 Masterplan - hub station

Cheshire East Council has launched an action plan to maximise the potential benefits of an enhanced HS2 hub station at Crewe.

Called the Crewe station hub area action plan, it aims to support the growth and regeneration opportunities for the town and wider South Cheshire region.

As part of a consultation, the council plans to engage with residents, business and landowners to help develop this key planning document.

Cllr Rachel Bailey, leader of Cheshire East Council, said: “The Crewe station hub area action plan builds on our previous work for the Crewe masterplan.

“This also continues to show government that the right hub at Crewe station will bring many opportunities to Crewe and the borough as a whole.

“As a council, we have not decided what the opportunities are going to be in the area when HS2 arrives.

“We want to work with the community and local businesses to identify them, so we have a plan that reflects the local area.

“This plan will then give us the framework we need to allow future growth when the station arrives.”

As part of the development of the area action plan, a HS2 issues paper has been published and the council will invite comments as to what the considerations should be, when planning for this nationally important infrastructure.

For local businesses with an interest in HS2, a business engagement breakfast session will be held on Friday November 16 from 8am-9.30am at Crewe Alexandra Football Club.

A community drop-in session will be held on November 29 between 4pm and 8pm at Crewe Alexandra Football Club.

The council’s planning policy team will attend local meetings with a variety of other stakeholders.

The issues paper can be downloaded online and comments can be made in person at the events, or by visiting and clicking on current consultations.

Comments can be submitted until 5pm on December 5.
