​Public realm enhancements in Frederick’s Place aim to create a more attractive, pedestrian-focussed environment, while respecting the historic setting of the area.

Works will be delivered in five phases (736KB) starting from June 2019 through to September 2019.

The scheme design (491KB) includes:

  • Raising the carriageway in Frederick's Place to footway level and repaving in small natural stone setts
  • Repaving the west footway in Old Jewry in York stone
  • Installation of heritage bollards, where they are required to prevent vehicle overrun
  • Improved heritage lighting
  • Proposals to introduce a 7am-7pm loading restriction, to limit the number of vehicles accessing the space in the daytime.
  • Proposals to remove an unused disable parking bay and relocate motorcycle parking to Lawrence Lane.

The proposed traffic changes are subject to statutory consultation, being undertaken in advance of the scheme’s completion.

Frederick’s Place will be closed to vehicles for the duration of the works.
Old Jewry will be temporarily closed to vehicles for three weeks, from late August 2019 to early September 2019.

Pedestrian access to all buildings will be maintained.
Cycle contraflow will also be maintained.

Works will take place during the following hours:

  • Monday to Friday: 8am-4pm, noisy works between 8am-10am and 12noon-2pm
  • Saturday: 9am-2pm
