Enhancing the City Beautiful
York is one of the UK's great heritage cities, and the quality of its centre is one of its chief selling points - it attracts visitors (about 7 million a year), students and entrepreneurs. It is a great place to live. But the quality of the public realm is under threat. Ron will examine some of the issues, and what has recently been done about them, and what can be done. He will mainly refer to the work of the civic trust's City Enhancement Fund, and may well mention his new book: York: changing the face of the city.
Ron was VC at York from 1993-2002, and has served on York Civic Trust for many years.
