Futures that didn’t happen: York’s Inner Ring Road

Meet outside York Explore Libraries and Archives – walking tour followed by discussion

6pm to 7.30pm

Join our My Future York research team to explore the plans – developed in the 1960s and 1970s – for York’s Inner Ring Road. The plans would have seen large-scale demolition and were contested by local activists through local action groups and a campaign called York 2000. We will visit areas that would have been affected by the plans – we will finish the tour up in a local pub to debate the implications of these plans for community involvement in York’s future planning today.


Part of the MyFutureYork project. The MyFutureYork project is developing richer understandings of the city’s history to help inspire new alternative visions and ideas for York’s future.
