Planned development for cityThe main priorities continue to be ‘York Pride’ and ‘Safe City’ and the York City seems intent on building work that has already taken place. York Pride motivates residents to take pride in their own street, neighbourhood and city. This means making a real difference to the cleanliness and condition of the physical environment.

Safe City is about making people feel safer on the streets and in their homes. In detail, it means visibly tackling anti-social behaviour such as criminal damage, graffiti and nuisance offences, in and around York.


Planned development for universities


University of York

Plans for a large extension to the University of York's main campus at Heslington were released in early 2003. The masterplan for the site, known as Heslington East, shows a green, landscaped site edged with woodland and a large lake, and served by environmentally friendly transport systems.

The project will enable the University to respond to the increased pressures on it to grow and will have enormous benefits for the city and region.


York St John College

Her Royal Highness The Princess Royal officially opened the Fountains Learning Centre, Foss and Skell Buildings at York St John College on Thursday 1 April 2004.  The new buildings, key elements in a £27 million development project, demonstrate the College’s commitment to providing top quality learning and teaching facilities for its students and staff and for the wider community.

Description:It is a great city famous for its churches and tight cobbled lanes, not unlike parts of Cambridge.The university, however, is slightly different. It is anything but historic, established in 1963 two miles south-east of the city centre in a village called Heslington. With the exception of a stately manor, the University seems to be made entirely of concrete and it looks as if the builders used the same plans for most of the campus. It's saving grace, however, are the well kept gardens, stratigically placed pond, complete with ducks .
