The Newport City Council unitary development plan and Sewta rail strategy plan for the station to be re-opened at the same time as the main line is re-signalled by 2012. Station reopening was subsequently postponed.
After the closure of the steelworks, and the construction of housing on the site, Llanwern seems likely to be under consideration for some part in a broader Severnside Parkway scheme, to relieve the pressure of commuter traffic and its parking on the village of Rogiet and Severn Tunnel Junction.
Planning permission has been requested in 2019 by Transport for Wales as part of their preliminary plans for a major events stabling line at the site. The line will be used to situate infrastructure close to demand for major occasions such as Millennium Stadium events in Cardiff, but also serve as a line for testing new Construcciones y Auxiliar de Ferrocarriles trains for the South Wales Metro, to be manufactured at the nearby Celtic Springs Business Park factory. The larger scheme, including the railway station and car park, will be submitted in a later application
