Planning and building

York Station Front - Delivery

The master plan proposal for York Station Front is based on 8 key features which work together to improve the use of space in front of York Station.

Following our consultation (which took place between 11 June and Monday 9 July 2018) we expect to submit a planning application for the first phase of transformation in autumn 2018. Separate applications will also be submitted for 'Scheduled Monument Consent' and 'Listed Building Consent' to cover the work around the City Wall and to York Railway Station.

Scope of the initial planning application

The initial 'Highway Works Planning Application' will cover:

Phases of the master plan

Different landowners and funding arrangements mean that the master plan will be delivered in phases, each with appropriate partners, planning approval and timescales. Subject to planning approval in winter 2018/early 2019, the work will follow approximate timescales:

  • contractor appointed - autumn 2019
  • works commences - winter 2019/20
  • initial phase complete - mid 2021

Construction work to improve the area in front of York station will cause short term disruption - the methods we'll use are designed make sure that transport routes remain open so pedestrians and vehicles always have access.
