CE 18/19-33 Crewe Station Hub Area Action Plan – Development Strategy

Decision maker: Portfolio Holder for Housing, Planning and Regeneration

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: Yes

Is subject to call in?: Yes


The report seeks approval to consult on the next stage of the Crewe Station Hub Area Action Plan. The Plan is designed to guide and manage development in the environs of the new HS2 Hub Station at Crewe.


The Action Plan has been the subject of a four week issues consultation during November and December with a series of local engagement events. Alongside further evidence this feedback has helped shape a Development Strategy as the next stage of the Area Action Plan.



That, having considered the consultation responses set out in Appendix 1 to the report, and the recommendations of the Strategic Planning Board, the Portfolio Holder for Housing, Planning and Regeneration approves the  Development Strategy attached at Appendix 2 for consultation.


Reasons for the decision:

The proposed consultation forms part of the engagement and consultation phase of plan-making that will inform the Council’s final ‘publication’ version of the Plan which in due course will be submitted to Examination.


Alternative options considered:

The preparation of an Area Action Plan is discretionary. The Council could simply opt to manage development as best it can with existing policies. However, this is unlikely to provide the clarity and strategy appropriate for managing an area of rapid change and opportunity.
