Smokefree playparks in York

In our Health and Wellbeing Strategy, the council and its partners have committed to ‘creating a smoke free generation in York’. To help us achieve this we would like to introduce smoke free zones in the areas of the city where smoking is likely to be most visible or harmful, such as within children’s playparks in the city which are managed by the council.

To share your views on the plans please complete our online smokefree playparks survey.

Consultation closes 1 February 2021

Our Big Conversation

Our Big Conversation

Over the next 12 months taking part in 'Our Big Conversation' will give you the opportunity to shape our response to the big challenges facing York, such as:

  • our response and recovery after the Coronavirus pandemic
  • the climate emergency
  • how we move around the city
  • defining an exciting future for our city centre and district centres
  • where we live and work, what jobs are available
  • how we make sure York's economy works for all residents

My City Centre York

Help us to shape a city centre where the people of York love to spend time, live and work. My City Centre York is a response to the huge challenges facing the high street. Our city centre has always evolved, but changes to the way people shop, bank, access services and spend money mean that this will be quicker and more dramatic than we've seen before. See more information about My City Centre York, fill in our questionnaire, use or view an interactive feedback map, or find out about other events and activities.

The My City Centre York project has been paused temporarily as staff are redeployed to the coronavirus emergency response. Thank you for all responses to date, which will be taken into account when we recommence. We look forward to resuming discussions on the long term vision for the city centre soon.

Age Friendly York

We want older residents to help shape where they live by working with local groups, businesses and the council to identify and make changes to their physical and social environments.

Age Friendly York will:

  • enable people to live healthy and active lives
  • encourage communities to treat people with respect, regardless of their age

We will ensure decisions are resident focused by:

  • providing the opportunity to feedback at any point, through all aspects covered by Age Friendly York - there is no wrong time to have a view
  • to ensure you have access to what the key findings are from the consultations and how these directly inform the action plan
  • to ensure information is available about what has been achieved so far

We welcome your comments if:

  • you live in York and are an older person or have an interest in ensuring the best experience for people growing old in York
  • you work for an organisation that meets the interest of older people in York
  • you are part of a volunteer group that engages with older people
  • you are a carer or have a neighbour or relative that is an older person in York

We are therefore building the opportunities for continual feedback. Whether you have a single comment, want to add an additional comment to an Age Friendly York survey you have completed or want to provide your views for the first time, you can do so via these ongoing online surveys:

You can also provide general feedback via email: or Twitter: @AgeFriendlyYork.
