ePetition details

Parliament Street Fountain

We the undersigned petition the council to keep and restore the fountain so that it works not demolish a much loved York site.

Restoring the fountain would make the area look even more impressive. There are paved areas at each side of the fountain that can accommodate additional seating and tables for city users as they do on the continent in many cities, the fountain should be maintained and become a centrepiece for locals and tourist alike to enjoy rather than sitting at the few tables available looking at a proposed empty slabbed area which is what would happen with demolition. Removing this small fountain does not create a huge area, but does remove a lovely, obvious meeting point and a nice place to sit and have a coffee or just people watch.

This ePetition ran from 04/07/2015 to 15/08/2015 and has now finished.
