2017-2018: In 2017 My Castle Gateway opened up a conversation about the future of the Castle Gateway area using walks, workshops, photography, social media and lots of post it notes. In August 2017 My Castle Gateway published an open community brief for the Castle Gateway area for further discussion and, in December 2017, gathered responses to emerging Masterplan ideas. In April 2018 the Council Executive approved the masterplan vision.
2019-2020: In January 2019 we launched the next phase of My Castle Gateway to develop more detailed community briefs for Piccadilly, looked at the planning applications for St George’s Field car park and Castle Mills Apartments. In Summer and early Autumn 2019 we developed the Open Community Brief for the new public spaces. The Draft Open Brief for the new public spaces was posted for further discussion and testing in December 2019 and a final version was published in May 2020.
February 2022: The planning application for the new public spaces in Castle Gateway and the Eye of York was submitted. You can read the application at the Planning Portal (Ref:22/00209/FULM) – we’ve also got events coming up to explore the designs in more detail.
