Public Consultation on York Central Begins

Public consultation on the proposed development of York’s 72ha York Central site begins on Monday for a four week period, from Monday 18 January – Monday 15 February.

This site is York’s largest area of potentially developable brownfield land, with scope for between 1,000 – 2,500 new homes, 100,000 sq.m. of office space and 10ha of open and public space. Proposed changes to the surrounding area include a new “Station Gateway” to reshape the front of York Railway Station.

Council Leader Cllr. Chris Steward is urging people to feed into the consultation, saying “York Central is one of the pivotal developments for Yorks’s future.  Talked about for years as the answer to York’s need for modern office space and city centre housing, recent developments, including the Government’s designation of the site as an Enterprise Zone, have finally allowed the city to begin to conclusively plan for its future.  Your views will be used to inform the next stage of the site’s progress, which will be the creation of the York Central Planning Framework, so please, have your say now!”
