York Central

York Central is one of the largest brownfield regeneration sites in England, with some parts of the rail-locked space restricted to rail uses for more than 150 years.

The site is located next to the City of York’s existing retail and business core and railway station. York station will also be linked to the new HS2 network.

York Central offers the opportunity to create a series of new city centre residential and business neighbourhoods including a high-quality central business district with improved access to the city’s railway station. The project will deliver more than 6,500 new jobs, over 100,000 m2 of commercial space and up to 2500 new homes.

York Central is being brought forward by a partnership comprising Network Rail, the Homes & Communities Agency, National Railway Museum and City of York Council. Bringing together funding streams to support critical infrastructure and land ownership, the partners are working collaboratively to further the site’s masterplan and delivery strategy in order to accelerate development of this critical site within the Leeds City Region.

The project received outline planning approval in March 2019.
