Kate will also be talking to Leah Bennett about York community group Planet South Bank and Adrian Lovett about the launch of Good Food York as part of the Sustainable Food Cities network.

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

Join the Audience for Ask York.

What is Ask York? Well – first ask yourself ‘”What are the burning issues affecting York today?”

Ask York is a brand new show for Two Rivers Radio in 2018 that seeks to discuss many of the pressing questions facing the city today – by raising the issues with an expert panel.  The panel will bring answers, raise new questions and perhaps even come up with some solutions!  –  all while enjoying a drink and maybe a bite to eat.

Two Rivers Radio welcomes you to be part of the Ask York audience at The Angel on the Green from 8pm on Wednesday 24th January.

There is seating for around 30 – so please arrive in good time to avoid disappointment.

The show will not be broadcast live, but will be recorded and broadcast the following Monday 29th at 2pm. You will be able to listen to the broadcast here: www.tworiversradio.stream – and we will be archiving the show on the website, too.

The recording will begin at 8:30 and last for approximately 1 hour.

Each month, we will put together a panel of local politicians, journalists, campaigners, business-people, academics and experts in all manner of fields to be quizzed by a live audience.

The host and panel are for the 24th are yet to be confirmed, but as we get confirmations we will be updating the event so watch this space!

This is your opportunity to ask questions of those in the City that are making and affecting the decisions we as a community all have to live with and to hear all sides of many contentious debates.

It would be great if those who wish to come and ask a question contact the show in advance so that we have an idea of numbers. If you could also indicate the topic that you wish to discuss (not necessarily the specific question) that would be very useful: email – tworiversradio@gmail.com

Although the recording begins at 8:30, you are welcome to arrive early. The Angel on the Green has a wonderful menu (available until 8pm) and a cosy bar serving an excellent range of hot and cold drinks, alcoholic and non-alcoholic. There will also be time after the recording for audience and panel members to mingle and further discuss the topics raised.

So whether you have a question about housing, business rates, students, alcohol licencing, local services, health, education, road maintenance, recycling, benefits, green economy, use of public space, development of brownfield sites, universal credit, redevelopment, creating a Yorkshire Assembly, employment, Coney Street, making better use of the river, tourism, cultural diversity, equality or anything else — please get in touch.
