This is the beginning of an exciting time for York’s transport network.
Ed Young, the Conservative Candidate for York Central, has today called for York to be considered as a future home for the broadcaster, Channel 4.
The Conservative run City of York Council has exceeded the target of 1,036 set by the Department for Education for participation in the pilot and has now registered close to 2,000 children for free additional hours.
Conservative Cllr Stuart Rawlings, the City of York Council’s Executive Member for Education, Children & Young People, approved a plan at last Tuesday’s Executive Decision Session that will see 20 schools share in the £2.35 million budget to invest in infrastructure repairs and improvements such as roof repairs, kitchen ventilation, and better heating systems.
More of York’s children will get places at some of the county’s top performing schools thanks to new education investments. After consultation with parents across the city, the Conservative-led York Council has approved plans to create places per year at Scarcroft Primary School, while there will also be major investment in playing provision at Millthorpe Secondary School.
More than £20 million will be spent on roads, paths and cycleways as well as a new initiative funded by the government to make use of pioneering pothole detecting cameras to help identify and repair problems more quickly.
