Ask York 4: City Centre Regeneration & Urban Renewal

The Ask York 4 Panel:

  • Pete Kilbane – Chair
  • Imelda Havers – Independent Regeneration Consultant
  • David Dunning – News Editor at Minster FM
  • Cllr. Ashley Mason – Lib Dem
  • Phil Pinder – York Retail Forum

Listen live here at 1pm and again at 5pm.  Click the red bell in the bottom-right of your screen to receive alerts every time Two Rivers Radio is live.

Ask York 4 focused on City Centre Regeneration and there were some fantastic questions and great debate form both the live studio audience and the panel.

Should there be a cross party city summit to tackle #York’s issues on #regeneration and behaviour?  Is there a lack of leadership in @CityofYork on this?

Discussion moves on pedestrianisation of #York – do you think having more #footstreets would be a good thing for the future of the city?

Would a tourist tax help the regeneration of #York asks @GSwinburn? @imeldahavers says as a resident she has no problem with #tourists but stag & hen parties are a strain on resources and we should focus on that.

Would a tourist tax make #York a pariah city or a leader? Views from the floor at #AskYork are largely in favour; lively debate now happening about stag and hen parties!

Phil Pinder of @YorkRetailForum and the other panelists agree that business rates are archaic and should be abolished. @imeldahavers says they are the bane of retailers’ lives.

What can we do with the large empty shops and could they house indoor markets? Phil Pinder of @YorkRetailForum is in favour; @daviddunninguk says demographics have changed; maybe city-centre shops have had their day & focus should be on food/drink/entertainment?

Future of the old BHS centre revealed!

Final question for #AskYork is about #recycling: questioner asks why #York doesn’t have segregated bins in the city centre – the state of #York is an embarrassment!

Great questions and informative answers. This is a not to be missed show for anybody that cares about the future of our city!

Details of the next Ask York to be revealed soon.  We’d love to see you in the live studio audience.  If you have any ideas or thees you would like us to cover please get in touch: tworiversradio@gmail.com
