Closed To Us. Your Chance To Talk To The Council About City Centre Access.

We thought you’d really want to know about some upcoming workshops from City of York Council. They are running a series of workshops about city centre access including cycles as mobility aids, accessible routes through our city and Shopmobility. 

We encourage you to attend if you can but if you can’t attend or aren’t comfortable sharing your thoughts in the workshops, we are happy to share them on your behalf. Just get in touch!

Accessible routes in York City Centre

City of York Council are hosting a zoom workshop to review accessible routes in York city centre with disabled or mobility-impaired users.

They want to understand what people with a mobility impairment need to enable, and improve, their access to the city centre.

They’ll be looking at things such as:

  • What is the best route into the city centre now, and which could be improved?
  • The whole journey through the city, including level access, dropped kerbs, disabled parking bays, toilets, benches etc.

Book:

Please note, these are the same workshop so you only need to book onto one.

Shopmobility Focus Group

Whether you use Shopmobility regularly, occasionally, or never…the council want to hear why it does or doesn’t work for you.

They want to understand why you do or don’t use the current Shopmobility service and whether any changes to it could improve your access to the city centre. For example, where would be the ideal location and what facilities would you use?

Book for the Shopmobility focus group on 14th June, 1-2pm.

Cycling in the city centre

City of York Council are hosting an online workshop with cyclists and disabled people who use cycles as a mobility aid in York city centre.

They want to understand what cyclists need to improve their access to the city centre. The workshop will consider a number of key questions, including:

  • Who should be allowed to cycle in the city centre?
  • Could there be exemptions to allow certain users to cycle in the city centre (e.g. as a mobility aid)?
  • When and where would they be allowed to cycle?
  • Are the current cycle routes through the city centre sufficient/ suitable?
  • Could a dismount and hub model work to increase access?

Please note, these are the same workshop so you only need to book onto one.

  1. I have only just received this message and would have come if I had been told as the stop on parking in goodram gate has made it practically impossible to shop in the city centre. . You really need to see it all through the eyes of a disabled person Why do you not find a willing disabled person to go on the journey of trying to park and access the shops.?
