Haxby Station – Site Selection

The purpose of this report is to consider the potential sites for a new Haxby Station and recommend a single preferred site to be taken forward for further development.

Executive Members will be asked to, subject to previous approvals at Executive on 30 September 2021, approve a preferred single site to take forward for further development as the potential location of the new Haxby Station.

This item will be deferred to the 18 November 2021 Executive Meeting. Following the September Executive meeting the Council has been busy finalising the purchasing of the land. However, in the short timeframe between the Executive approving the purchase and the need for reports for the next meeting being published, the Council has not been able to finish all the necessary legal processes in time for a report to go to October’s meeting.  The potential for this postponement was discussed at the September Executive meeting, given the short time available to finalise the acquisition before the publication of reports for the next meeting. Work continues on the project and is not expected to impact the timelines for the wider Haxby station project.

This item has been deferred to the 9 December Executive meeting. Reason: To enable all legal processes to be finalised.
