About York Central

York Central is the large area to the west of the city’s railway station. The land on York Central is owned by Network Rail, Homes England, the National Railway Museum and City of York Council, together they have formed a group to develop the site called York Central Partnership.

York Central Partnership developed a masterplan which was passed in outline through the Council Planning Committee on 25th March 2019.

Each partner will now develop detailed ‘Reserved Matters’ planning applications covering different parts of the scheme. The council has prepared the first of these, giving details of the essential infrastructure and transport routes to open up the site.  The plans for the new bridge and road through the site are currently published on the Council’s Planning portal. Homes England and Network Rail are responsible for future applications for housing and employment space.

My York Central conversation will help shape the future ‘Reserve Matters’ applications.
