Minutes:

The Corporate Director of Place presented a report which provided an update on progress on the design and delivery of the York Railway Station Gateway Scheme, including funding status, delivery of the works packages, land acquisition and legal agreements with strategic project partner, LNER.

 

Key milestones and current activity on the project were detailed in paragraphs 10-25 of the report.  Work was ongoing to discharge the conditions of the planning consent achieved in February 2021.  The contract for professional services had been re-procured due to the increased scope of this element of work.  The preferred delivery strategy for the scheme, as agreed with project partners, was set out in Table 1 at paragraph 12, with the recommended procurement routes (Packages 1-4), along with their estimated costs, in Table 2.  In addition to the updated WYCA funding for the scheme of £25.990m, LNER had confirmed funding of £0.5m to re-surface the station portico, bringing the total revised budget to £26.490m.

 

The Chair welcomed the report, and the continued focus on a project that would enhance sustainable transport links.  The Executive Member for Transport highlighted the commitment to rail demonstrated by the project and noted that Package 5 (multi-storey car park) was not included in the funding and would be delivered by Network Rail and LNER.

 

Resolved:  (i)      That the progress made to date with the regard to the design and delivery of the York Station Gateway scheme in particular with respect to procurement of a new professional services contract, delivery of the Package 1: Enabling Works, Package 2: Highway Works, land acquisition, design, Contractor procurement, and current funding status, be noted.
