Current consultations

Fossgate improvements

Fossgate is one of the York's best loved streets, with its own special character in the heart of the city. It offers a variety of independent shops, cafés, restaurants and pubs which attract a diverse range of residents and visitors. We want to continue working with residents and businesses to support Fossgate's vibrant, growing community, and we’re seeking your feedback on how to invest £500,000 in improvements.

See www.york.gov.uk/Fossgate for further information about our proposals, and how to give your feedback.

Your comments will help us create our final designs for improvements to Fossgate, and will also help our Executive Member for Transport and Planning to decide on whether to go ahead with the improvements at the open decision-making session on Thursday 15 November 2018.

Consultation closes: Midnight on Sunday 14 October 2018


The Future of Hob Moor Multi-Use Games Area and investment in social space

As part of our older person’s accommodation programme, Lincoln Court is due to be renovated and extended; it provides much-need sheltered accommodation for York’s increasingly ageing population. As Lincoln Court is situated close to the Multi-Use Games Area (MUGA) off Hob Moor Oaks School, the development of the accommodation will result in part of the MUGA being replaced. This presents an opportunity to update the previously disused MUGA area with something that takes into consideration the ideas of residents and young people in the area.

We would like to know the following:

  • what would you like to happen to the land the MUGA currently occupies? For example, would you like to see it grassed over, or wooden climbing frames for children installed?
  • how young people use open spaces, and what we could do to improve the areas already in use? For example, would you like to see a shelter for young people to meet under, or cycle racks, or do you have other ideas?

You are welcome to email us your ideas: ProposedDevelopmentOnWindsorGarth@york.gov.uk.

Consultation closes: Midnight on Tuesday 16 October 2018
