Several developers have submitted plans to build more than 1,100 new properties in the Cheshire town.
The largest of the developments in Crewe includes 650 new homes on a housing estate north of Remer Street, according to The Sentinel newspaper.
It is where Taylor Wimpey will demolish the Cross Keys pub so a larger roundabout can be built.
Meanwhile, Bloor Homes and Linden Homes have made a joint application to build 400 properties north of Parkers Road.
Cheshire East Council's strategic planning board has postponed its decision until more information is available, but the plans are expected to get the go ahead.
A council report on the proposals says the developments are acceptable in terms of providing affordable homes, as long as developers contribute to off site highway improvements for traffic handling.
It follows reports in the Crewe Chronicle that plans to create 64 new homes in Middlewich have been approved by Cheshire East Council.
