York Central

Two New #York Central Events announced on 16/8 & 21/8

Policy into practice on York Central

6:00pm – 8:00pm Thursday 16th August
York Explore, Museum Street

York has signed up to a number of policies which reflect the principles and aspirations of local people and their representatives. We are a One Planet city which implies a broad set of principles; we are a Human Rights City and also a UNESCO Creative City. What do these, and other, pledges imply in terms of how we carry out development, and how are they shaping the proposals for York Central?
This will be a workshop session with talks by a number of people who can bring expertise and practical experience to the discussion, who will also be there to facilitate debate and help us finish with concrete next steps which we can take together. Guests will include:-here
Chris Bailey speaking on UNESCO Creative Cities / Liz Lockey speaking about York: Human Rights City / Paul MaCabe on One Planet York

Community-led housing on York Central
6:00pm – 8:00pm Tuesday 21st August
York Explore, Museum Street

Affordable housing was one of the biggest issues from the public engagement at the Festival of York Central. There is a pledge to deliver 20% affordable housing within the development proposals but how can local people take a lead in developing ideas which go beyond this? Can we learn from Leeds Community Homes and Yorspace and look for models of home-building and tenure which open up opportunities to create additional homes which suit the financial (and other) needs of different people? Can we look for ways of providing homes which differ from developers’ standard offer? What about co-housing, shared ownership, self-build?
This will be a workshop session with talks by a number of people who can bring expertise and practical experience to the discussion, who will also be there to facilitate debate and help us finish with concrete next steps which we can take together. Guests will include:-
Jimm Reed – CoHo
James Newton – Yorspace
