The plans, drawings and other material on the following webpages have been submitted to City of York Council in order to apply for planning permission.

They are available to view for consultation purposes only (see Copyright notice below).

If you have any reason to suspect that the information is incorrect, contact planning enquiries immediately by email so that the matter can be investigated and any corrections made as soon as reasonably practical.
