Current consultations

Scarborough Bridge footbridge

In partnership with CityConnect and Network Rail, we are undertaking a consultation on proposals to build a new shared-use bridge spanning the River Ouse adjacent to the existing Scarborough-line railway bridge and connecting to York Station.

The current footbridge spanning the River Ouse adjacent to the existing Scarborough-line railway bridge is not accessible for anyone with mobility issues; the nearest suitable river crossing being the heavily congested and narrow pavements of Lendal Bridge. The proposed new crossing will provide a much wider bridge suitable for pedestrians, cyclists, pushchairs, wheelchairs and those with mobility issues. It will incorporate ramps, as well as stepped access so that a wider range of users are catered for.  

We'd really like to hear your feedback on these proposals.  Have your say by sending your comments to scarboroughbridge@york.gov.uk or post to: Scarborough Bridge Consultation, City of York Council, Transport Projects, Eco Depot, Hazel Court, York YO10 3DS.

Consultation closes 28 July 2017

York Older People's Survey

We want to find out how we can look after the valuable asset that is our older people and how we can support you to maintain your independence. We are interested in knowing how you currently live, the issues you face and hearing your ideas on how we can keep older people healthy, happy and independent for longer.

This survey is being conducted collaboratively between York Older People's Assembly, Age (UK) York, Healthwatch York, York Council for Voluntary Services, York Blind and Partially Sighted Society, York Alzheimer's Society, The Vale of York CCG, the Police and Crime Commissioner and City of York Council.

We would be grateful if you could take the time to complete our York Older People's survey. The results will be influential in helping these organisations to shape the support they offer to older people.

Consultation closes 30 June 2017
