Persimmon’s plans for Bootham Crescent: consultation event

We knew it was coming, but still quite a shock to see this …

There has also been a statement today from the football club, which is worth a read.

In past years I’ve written a piece about aspects of the history of the Bootham Crescent ground. All pages tagged Bootham Crescent can be found on this link.

A page I published a few days ago includes an image of the new stadium build out at Monk’s Cross, with a thought about the significance and placement of any sizeable green space left between the houses back at Bootham Crescent, when the housing is built.

I will do my best to cover whatever develops regarding these proposals, and any future planning application, and will certainly be giving it a lot of attention, as someone who’s lived close to the ground for more than 20 years.

If you’d like to support these pages, I appreciate your virtual coffees.

Update, 26 Sept

I’ve just added more on the plans and consultation event held last week.
