Councillor Keith Aspden, Liberal Democrat Executive Member for Economic Development, said:
"The regeneration of York Central is vital to the future growth of York’s economy and thanks to the efforts of the York Central Partnership; we are now a step closer to realising York Central’s potential.”
“I am pleased to see the project reach this stage and now, we must engage with more residents to get involved and help shape the future plans. I strongly believe that it is only through engagement with York’s residents that the council will be able to make York Central a success.”
