Consultation is now under way on proposals to transform the Selby Station area. Proposals in Selby include improved station frontage and links to the town centre, Abbey and bus station; improved walking and cycling links to major redevelopment sites, including a new cycle and footbridge over the River Ouse to the Olympia Park site.

A partnership of local authorities succeeded in a bid for funding to the Department for Transport’s Transforming Cities Fund (TCF). The TCF aims to make it easier, safer and quicker for people to travel on foot, by bike and by public transport. The project will be delivered by a partnership of the West Yorkshire Combined Authority, North Yorkshire County Council and Selby District Council and is scheduled to be completed by 2023.

A public consultation on the proposals is running until 24 March 2021. People can read more about the proposals and complete the surveys at www.yourvoice.westyorks-ca.gov.uk/northyorkshire

In addition, online public events will enable people to hear more about the projects and to ask questions before completing the survey. These take place on:

·       4 and 12 March.

Both will start at 6pm. Find out how to join at www.yourvoice.westyorks-ca.gov.uk/northyorkshire

Public feedback will help to shape the next stage of the project plans.
