Masterplan includes 2,500 homes, new commercial space and expansion of National Railway Museum

Allies & Morrison and Arup have submitted proposals for 2,500 new homes, new commercial and retail space, and the expansion of the National Railway Museum on a 45 hectare swathe of York.

The proposals, which have been two years in development, were drawn up for York Central Partnership following a successful bid to become one of the government’s “housing zone” areas focusing on disused railway infrastructure and buildings that surround the museum.

The plans – just submitted – also include the creation of new hotels, improved cycling access, a public park, and a new western concourse for York Railway Station.
