from Selby District Council:

Consultation - Have your say on plans for £17.5 million walking, cycling and public transport boost in Selby

People are being asked to have their say on £17.5 million plans to boost walking, cycling and public transport in Selby, delivered in partnership by Selby District Council, North Yorkshire County Council and the West Yorkshire Combined Authority. 

Brand new entrances to Selby train station, new public spaces linking the station to the town centre and a brand new foot and cycle bridge are included in the major new plans to transform the area around Selby train station.

The proposals include:

  • Creating a new station entrance
  • Creating a new public space outside the station
  • A brand new walking and cycling route through Selby Park to better link the station with the Abbey and town centre
  • Improvements to roads and junctions around the station
  • A new route underneath Park Street bridge to link with Portholme Road (to avoid the current steep stairways)
  • Building a new bus station to make links between buses and trains easier
  • Opening up new station car parking
  • A new cycle and footbridge over the River Ouse

The Council is asking for people to share their views on the plans, with a four week long consultation taking place between 24 February and 24 March. Find out more information about the plans and have your say at
