Funding secured for brand new Cheadle Station

Confirmation was received overnight that the Cheadle Town Board have secured funding for three projects totalling almost £14m, including over £8m to fully fund a new railway station for Cheadle.

Speaking after the announcement, Cllr Mark Hunter, Leader of the Council, local councillor and former MP for Cheadle, said: “This is fabulous news for Cheadle but will have further reaching impacts by bringing rail services into convenient reach for many more residents, relieving pressure on our crowded roads.

“I began the campaign for this station when I was MP for Cheadle and I pay credit to Tom Morrison for his efforts on the Cheadle Town Board to ensure this vital bid was successfully made.”

Cllr Tom Morrison, Lib Dem Parliamentary Spokesman for Cheadle and local councillor, added: “This is brilliant news for Cheadle. The Lib Dems have long campaigned for a train station in the area and are delighted that it’s closer to happening.

“It’s important that we don’t forget that the local community made this happen though. Cheadle Village Partnership have been instrumental in making this a reality. They led the consultation with the community and deserve huge applause!

“Thank you to everyone who has been involved in this campaign.”
