Spark:York receives planning permission

Spark:York Director Sam Leach gave a superb speech to City of York Council’s planning committee this evening, after which we were granted planning permission with a few conditions which included no live or amplified music and the outdoor courtyard closing at 9pm.

We’re really pleased and excited, and have an amazing team of volunteers, supporters, mentors and advisors around us; all of whom helped us make this possible.

The hard work begins now, and we’ll be spending the next 4-6 weeks preparing the site, customising containers and interviewing prospective tenants.

We look forward to welcoming you all this Summer!
