Transforming York Station Front

The proposals for York Station Front are based on 8 key features which improve the use of space - take part in our consultation about York Station Front to let us know your views.

Your comments will shape the final masterplan for the area, and inform the individual planning applications which will ultimately decide what the spaces look like and how they'll be used.

Consultation closes at midnight on Monday 9 July 2018

Advertising statutory public notices

Do you know what a statutory public notice is, do you read them or even know where to find them? Please share your opinions with us.

We hope to use the results from this short survey about making the process of advertising statutory notices more appealing so that we can reach more people.

Consultation closes at midnight on Friday 29 June 2018

Clean Air Zone Proposal

Complete the survey on proposals to introduce a new Clean Air Zone (CAZ) to York for the area within and including the inner ring road, to let us know your views.

This CAZ will require any individual bus to meet ultra low emission buses (ULEB) standards, if the bus:

  • operates on a public local bus service within the CAZ
  • uses the service route 5 or more times per day

ULEBs are those that have no exhaust emissions or have significantly reduced pollution emissions such as those which are:

  • electric
  • electric hybrid
  • Euro 6 diesel powered
  • gas powered

We will consider responses to this consultation and a further report will be presented to a meeting of the Council’s Executive later in 2018.

Consultation closes at midnight on Friday 3 August 2018

Statement of Licensing Policy

It is a legal requirement of the Gambling Act 2005 that licensing authorities publish a Statement of Licensing Policy at least every 3 years. We are therefore consulting on the content of our draft Licensing Policy Statement prior to publication.

Comments on our draft policy should be sent by email: licensing.unit@york.gov.uk or by post:

Licensing Section
City of York Council
Eco Depot
Hazel Court

The consultation closes at midnight on Sunday 12 August 2018

York Suicide Safer Community Strategy

Suicide is a serious social and public health issue. Every year too many York residents take their own life and many more people are deeply affected by the loss of a loved one, friend or colleague through suicide.

We have been working to reduce suicide and the harms and negative impact associated with suicide experienced by those who live, work in and are connected to York.

We are pleased to present the Draft Suicide Safer Community Strategy for York, through which we aim to achieve the Health and Wellbeing Board’s ambition to make the city a Suicide Safer Community. This draft strategy has been approved by the local Health & Wellbeing Board for public consultation to seek views from members of the public about its content and ambitions to help reduce suicide.

We would like to encourage anyone with an interest in helping us to provide feedback on our draft Suicide Safer Community strategy. We plan to take into consideration all comments and feedback that are given and to build these into a final version of the Strategy, which we plan to introduce at our forthcoming Suicide Prevention Conference on 20 September 2018.

Consultation closes at midnight on Wednesday 22 August 2018
