HS2 meeting 25th September

A brief outline from yesterdays Public Meeting at Keele Hall is as folows:

The work in our Parish will involve road work to install a power line to the tunnelling machinery in Madeley.  The roads works will be on the A525 from Bar Hill to the junction with Pepper Street then along Pepper Street to the substation in Silverdale.  There will be public consultation events on the pals once finalised (see below).  The roads will not be closed but traffic management will be in place.  We will have a formal right to petition the select committee on aspects of the plan which affect us.

Phase 2a of HS2 (Birmingham to Crewe) has not yet been before the Lords nor has it had its third reading.  HS2 hope to get Royal Assent late 2019.  Neighbouring parishes may choose to petition the Lords’ select committee with regard to a longer deeper tunnel although it was suggested that it would be unlikely to be successful.  The HS2 team are sending copies of the presentation, maps etc to the clerk and we will circulate in due course.

Keele Growth Corridor

The Sentinel and Signal Radio have both published articles about the Borough Councils plans for the Golf Course as part of the ‘Keele Growth Corridor’ formerly known as the ‘Western Urban Extension’.  The Plans are proposing 1000 houses on the Golf Course and with 200 more  on land off Park Road, Silverdale together with a expansion of the University with a second development site next to the current site plus other developments within the Campus.  Keele Parish Council have worked with Newcastle in the run up to the release of these plans but do not support the Masterplan in its current form.  We broadly support the proposed development at the University but cannot support the plans to build this number of houses.  No work has been done within the plan on developing the necessary transport infra-structure, supporting existing businesses nor on the environmental impact.  The Parish Council continue to work with the Borough and would hope that the scheme will be amended.  If not, we shall vigorously oppose it should it go forward to inspection as part of a Local Plan.
