  • Castle Gateway - redevelopment provides the opportunity to create a high quality mixed-use development and build on the vitality of the city centre
  • Former British Sugar and Manor School sites - planning applications were submitted for residential and community uses in December 2014. The City of York Council has been working with the developer in order to resolve remediation and design/layout issues
  • Former Terry's Factory - new homes are being completed on the northern half of the former factory site by David Wilson Homes. Henry Boot Developments Ltd are progressing options for re-use of the listed buildings and for the development of commercial buildings on the south side of the site

Blocks D and F have detailed planning permission (works relating to the construction of Block F are due to commence in Autumn 2017) and Blocks G and H have outline planning approval.
  • Nestlé South – formerly part of the Nestlé factory complex, redevelopment of the site could provide a prestige development which contributes to the long-term success of York's economy.
