And music mogul and rail enthusiast Pete Waterman is supporting the scheme, which comes as part of a wider blueprint which is due to be completed shortly.
He said: "Now the decision has been made to keep the station where it is, we can get on with the job of making this work.
"We can all pull in the same direction and get behind getting the best out of this classic station."
The proposals have been produced by Cheshire East Council and the North West Development Agency (NWDA). They involve a number of agencies, employers and organisations in the area.
