The location for a Government Hub has yet to be agreed but GPA is working collaboratively with Homes England, Network Rail and City of York Council to establish if it should be located at York Central. As in all Government Hubs, this Hub will include a Business Events Centre that will provide some limited conferencing facilities for Government Departments. The local community would not normally have access to a Government Hub.
Facilities in any new build Government Hub will be limited but normally include a cafe and a Business Events Centre, which can be reconfigured to provide flexible spaces for various uses.
The final location for the York Government Hub has yet to be agreed but if it were to be at York Central, GPA would need it completed by 2027.
