Cheadle Towns Fund

3. Cheadle Railway Station

The proposal for a new station forms the key element of the integrated Cheadle Town Investment Plan. This means that the station will be supported by a package of Active Travel measures and complemented by investment in a low carbon Eco Business Park to boost job opportunities locally.

We have secured some advanced Towns Fund monies to undertake further assessment work and produce a Business Case in March 2022. However feasibility work is ongoing, especially to take account of proposed new rail timetables.

Following the consultation, we undertook further design work and have submitted a planning application (DC/084801). To view the planning application, enter the reference DC/084801 on the planning portal.

The station Business Case has now been passed. This means that the funding is secured. The next steps are to gain all approvals and enter into rail industry agreements. We expect the station to be built in phases, completing by 2025, with operational services to follow.
