York Central Historic Core Conservation Area Appraisal (HCCAA)

The York Central Historic Core Conservation Area (YCHCCA) is one of the largest and most complex in England with 24 character areas forming the larger conservation area. It was adopted by Planning Committee on 24th November 2011.

Each one is dealt with as a separate character statement covering the following areas:

  • overview
  • designations
  • streets and spaces
  • buildings
  • traffic and movement
  • issues and opportunities

Our Planning Committee approved the adoption of the YCHCCA appraisal which was carried out in partnership with Alan Baxter Associates and Historic England.
