Haxby Station – Site Selection
Resolved: (i) That the decisions made at Executive on 30 September 2021 concerning the Haxby Station project be noted.
(ii) That the deletion of the second half of paragraph 16 of the report (from ‘Furthermore’ onwards), as reported at the meeting, be noted.
(iii) That Site 2 – Towthorpe Road be approved as the preferred location for a station in Haxby to take forward for further development.
(iv) That the further public consultation planned to be undertaken during the next development stage, to understand any local concerns and the measures which should be considered to mitigate any impact of progressing the preferred site, be noted.
(v) That it be noted that further reports will be brought to Executive to update Members on progress.
Reason: To afford City of York Council the best opportunity to progress this project and present the strongest case possible to Central Government (the Department for Transport; and Treasury) for the granting of funding to enable the full delivery of a new rail station at Haxby.
