How viability will shape York Central
August 8, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
York Central is the large piece of land between the railway station and Water End. A partnership of City of York Council, Network Rail, the National Railway Museum and Homes England is developing the site for housing and commercial space. To help develop the plans, a public engagement process called My York Central was undertaken in March and April, leading to a Vision, a summary Big Ideas and Principles. We are now exploring the ideas in more depth through a series of events. All very welcome.
6:00pm – 8:00pm Wednesday 8th August
York Explore, Museum Street

Although the economics of large-scale developments are complex, the basic principles are reasonably straightforward and open to anyone to understand. We have heard many times that the site is “expensive”, but how expensive, and what implications does this have? How uch does it drive questions of density and building height, and does it restrict – or conversely encourage – opportunities to pursue innovative ideas within the development?
This will be a workshop session with talks by a number of people who can bring expertise and practical experience to the discussion, who will also be there to facilitate debate and help us finish with concrete next steps which we can take together.
Guests will include:-
Andy Dainty – Urbo Regeneration
