Julian welcomes York Central funding announcement

March 11, 2020

Julian has welcomed the Chancellor’s announcement in the Budget that he has approved an investment, potentially totalling £77 million, from the Government’s Housing Infrastructure Fund to unlock the York Central brownfield site.

Julian had previously raised delays to the approval of the funding on the floor of the House of Commons and was due to meet with the new Housing Minister, Christopher Pincher to discuss the issue.

The bid was submitted to fund a new access road to the 45-hectare site, allowing the creation of over 2500 new homes and 112,000 square meters of high-quality commercial space.

After hearing the announcement, Julian said:

“I am delighted that after many months of lobbying the Government, the Chancellor has finally announced the approval of funding for York Central. Whist we await the specific details, it is hoped that the investment will help to improve the connectivity of the site and addresses the principal concern of local residents by mitigating the impact of increased traffic on the city’s roads.

The Government is proving that it is serious about investing in the North and as one of the largest city-centre brownfield sites in Europe, York Central presents a major opportunity to boost the regional economy. I look forward to seeing this opportunity realised as we enter the next phase of development.”
