Event details

York Society of Engineers Lecture

York Central is the most significant urban extension in York’s modern history and is currently one of the largest ‘brownfield’ regeneration projects in the UK. A project which has been talked about for the last 40 years is now starting to move.

The York Central site has the potential to deliver 6,500 jobs, 2,500 homes and 1 million square feet of offices, retail and leisure to significantly boost economic regeneration in the city. It also includes new roads, pedestrian and cycle routes, a new linear park and a number of new bridges over the East Coast Mainline. The project is of local, regional and national importance and we are now at an exciting time where things are starting to happen on site.

Project Director Leon Guyett and Project Manager Natalie Webster will provide an overview of the history of the project, provide an update on the £100m+ infrastructure and other work ongoing at the moment, and what will be happening next at York Central.
