Improvements North Yorkshire's Roads From 2015

The county will focus on agricultural science with money to develop the Food and Research Agency at Sand Hutton and also at York University and Askham Bryan College.
Money has also been provided to help the re-development of the York Central site, which will include a housing, office, retail and leisure regeneration site.
The BioVale in York will benefit from new science facilities and an "Innovation cluster" for biotechnology, set to help companies an organisations to develop high value chemicals, natural products, biofuels and the processing of bio-waste.
The Olympia Park development will bring major investment into Selby District and much needed new housing. The development of the old BOCM site will eventually deliver 844 new homes and also provide the roads and access for commercial development and the creation of new jobs. The project already has planning permission and it now needs the finance putting in place so that work can commence.
Selby MP Nigel Adams said:
“I have been a supporter of this development ever since the announcement of the BOCM closure. It has now reached the stage where work can start as soon as the finance is available. This is a very important project for Selby District and I have made the case that Government money from the Local Development Fund should be used to kick start the project. I first wrote to the Minister about this funding in May 2014. With the decision expected shortly I have again written to the Minister and pointed out the importance of this project to Selby and the Yorkshire region.”
