The YoCo Community Plan for York Central. Picture: Yoco.co.uk
A local community group in York have made alternative plans for the development of the York Central site behind the railway station. Usually decided by developers, the community group YoCo have deemed the plans too important and have asked local people to get involved. The group are opposing the original plan, approved in March 2019, arguing it will consist of only 20% affordable housing, chain hotels and traffic jams. Members of the public are invited to go to the YoCo site and vote on the community or original plan.
