Friday 17 and Saturday 18 May, 11am-7pm
Location: South Piazza, York Minster
Your chance to have your say about the future development and use of the buildings and land within York Minster’s boundaries.
A two-day public consultation event will run in the Minster’s South Piazza area encouraging feedback on the cathedral’s emerging draft masterplan for the development of its precinct.
York Minster sits on a six hectare site that was first occupied more than 2000 years ago. Known as the “Precinct”, the area includes the Old Palace Library and Archive, the Minster School, the internationally renowned Stoneyard, homes for the Minster’s clergy team, office accommodation and Dean’s Park – one of the biggest areas of green space within the city walls.
The exhibition follows a consultation event held in May 2018, when respondents had the opportunity to learn about the cathedral’s vision for the area and contribute their thoughts for how the precinct might evolve to ensure it reflects the needs of the cathedral’s community and visitors.
This feedback was used to create a draft plan, which the cathedral is now inviting feedback on. The plan includes proposals for a café, a new visitor centre, a sensory garden with access to the city walls and the creation of a new public square in Duncombe Place – the first to be created in the city in nearly 200 years.
For those unable to attend the exhibition, the consultation will also be available online from 1pm on Friday 17 May at www.masterplanning.yorkminster.org to give as many people as possible the opportunity to view the details and comment. The consultation will run until midnight on Sunday 16 June.
