Progress on parking at Poppleton Station

January 13, 2023

Following concerns raised by Upper Poppleton Parish Council about parking along Station Road, Julian brought representatives from Network Rail and Northern Rail to see the existing car park and discuss whether unused land on the opposite side of the road could be provide additional parking spaces.

Being able to view the site in person gave Network Rail and Northern Rail the opportunity see the potential the new site could bring as well as confirm that the current parking provision was oversubscribed given that on a Friday – usually the quietest commuter day – the car park was full.

With the car park not satisfying demand, many drivers are parking along Station Road creating difficulties for those walking to the station, especially those in wheelchairs. Furthermore, inconsiderate parking also effectively makes Station Road a single lane road which makes it difficult for busses to pass.

Following the meeting a two-pronged approach was agreed. In the short-term, City of York Council will be approached to provide parking enforcement for drivers parking dangerously along Station Road. In the long-term, Network Rail need to identify who owns the land and project the cost of a new car park.

Julian promised to organise an update meeting in a few months so each party can explain the progress they have made in helping make this project a reality.
