The Council has received two more applications which could allow “community bids” to be made to purchase local amenities.
The first concerns the Holgate community garden and play area which is located off Cleveland Street.
Local residents have recently been stepping up their objections to the access bridge into the York Central development which could adversely impact on the park.
The second application concerns the Blacksmiths Arms pub in Naburn.
A meeting taking place on 12th September will decide whether to add the properties to a list which – in the event of their coming on the market – would allow a local community group to make an offer to buy.
The moves follow similar initiatives last month involving Grove House EPH and White Rose House in Wheldrake. While the application for Grove House was rejected but the Council has still to determine its approach to the Wheldrake building.
