Residents and businesses have until Monday 14 October to have their say on plans which could guide future developments on the former Bootham Park hospital site.

City of York Council and local health partners want comments on site development plans which they hope influence any future owners of the site.

The former hospital, which includes a series of Grade 1 and 2 listed buildings, is back on the market after a sale fell through earlier this year.

The council and the York Teaching Hospital NHS Foundation Trust have included their own land to the north and east of the former hospital to show how a larger site could respond to the healthcare, housing, transport and green space needs of this area and the wider city.

The site development report was produced after consultation late last year, and shows how a sensitive and appropriate development could provide:

  • Around 140 dwellings including 52 key worker apartments
  • A new physiotherapy suite, medical training and research centre of excellence
  • A 70 bed care home
  • 60 assisted living/supported living apartments
  • A new children's nursery
  • Multi-storey car parking to maintain existing parking capacity and open up the site
  • extensive public open space

Councillor Nigel Ayre, City of York Council executive member for finance and performance, said:
"Thanks to everyone who has taken part so far. The hundreds of comments we’ve received at events and exhibitions, and through the council’s website and social media, reveal the deep connection many residents feel to this site.

"That’s why, even though we don’t own the site, we’re taking these steps to try and make sure future development continue its role in York life.

"So please take a look at the plans, give us your feedback and we’ll use them to influence the future owners."
