Party Chairman Visits York Central Site

May 10, 2017

Last week, Julian was delighted to join Sir Patrick McLoughlin, Chairman of the Conservative Party in York to visit the York Central Teardrop site.

Alongside Ed Young and Kevin Hollinrake, the respective Conservative prospective parliamentary candidates for York Central and Thirsk and Malton, Julian took Sir Patrick along to see the very early stages of this exciting development.

The 72-hectare site in the city-centre will deliver over 1,000 homes and space for office, leisure and retail uses. The project has been touted as a ‘Kings Cross of the north’ and key to York’s economic future.

After the visit, Julian said:

“This is an exciting development for our city that makes a clear statement about York being open for business. The brownfield site is brimming with potential and Sir Patrick recognises the transformative economic effects the project could have for our area.

Development in York is unequivocally positive and we must start to look ahead and ensure York is able to make the most of future opportunities by pushing ahead with improvements to our transport network: Trans-Pennine electrification is essential to improve links with Leeds and Manchester, capacity on the East Coast Main Line must be boosted to meet future passenger growth, and substantial improvements to our ring-road are vital.”
