Cheshire East Council has already secured £22million of funding through the Government’s Local Growth Fund.

The bid was part of the Cheshire and Warrington ‘Growth Deal’ which in total has received £142million to improve connectivity and deliver growth across the region. A further £2million has been contributed by the Greater Manchester Combined Authority (GMCA).

Any funding shortfall would be guaranteed by Cheshire East Council and potential developer contributions.
