High Speed Rail 2 Phase 2a - Qualifying Authority

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: Yes


Cabinet considered a report which sought approval for the Council to become a Qualifying Authority for the construction of phase 2a of High Speed Rail 2 (HS2).


The Deputy Leader indicated that nothing in this or the next following report would predetermine the Council’s decision on whether to support phase 2b of the scheme.


Members emphasised the need for local communities affected by the scheme to be consulted on any proposals.




That Cabinet recommends to Council that Cheshire East Council become a Qualifying Authority as specified in part 2 of Schedule 17 of the High Speed Rail (West Midlands - Crewe) Bill and authorises the Executive Director for Place in consultation with the Monitoring Officer to sign the Planning Memorandum to enable this to happen.
