Planning approval has been granted for a new public square in York. The square will link York Central to the back entrance of the railway station and to the front of the National Railway Museum. Plans for the Square at the York Central development were submitted for approval by Homes England and Network Rail Limited on behalf of the York Central Partnership at the end of July 2023.

The granting of planning permission for the Square is the latest positive step at York Central. It will consist of a large, hard-surfaced area with areas of soft landscaping to create shade and shelter. It will also include seating and lighting with opportunities for public art also under discussion.
