Planning and building

York Station Front - Station Square

The masterplan 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.

Currently the station has little public space for people to enjoy some of the York's most striking heritage.

The proposals would create new public spaces in Station Square and Tea Room Square; these would transform the 'gateway to the city' into a pedestrian-friendly and high quality public area, transforming the arrival and departure experience for York, in front of the station.

The interior of the 'Porte-Cochere' will be developed in another phase and will be led by the station operator.
