York Central Movement: In depth and in context
July 30, 2018 @ 6:00 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.
6.00-8.00pm, Monday 30th July
National Railway Museum, Mallard Suite, entrance furthest away from the station

The York Central outline planning application will be submitted on 8th August. This workshop will explore the York Central plans for movement (walking; cycling; cars; taxis; buses) in depth, as well as to put the plans in the context of the city’s transport strategy more
generally. Alongside representatives of York Central Partnerships masterplanning team who will introduce the strategy and recent transport modelling, Professor Tony May (Institute for Transport Studies, University of Leeds and York Civic Trust) will help inform our discussions.
In particular we will focus on the issue of how – in keeping with council policy and the My York Central Big Ideas – the masterplan can prioritise pedestrian and cycling; identify means of encouraging public transport use and explore how car movement through the site can be
managed in the context of the wider road network.
