Promising Developments for York as 2024 Begins

The 2022 put on a rollercoaster ride, with only one Prime Minister and Chancellor of the Exchequer, local elections, change of administration and #ReverseTheBan on blue badge holders accessing the city centre. Blue badge holders will have access to the city center, and barriers at Goodramgate from tomorrow with further access via Blake Street coming later in the year. Great progress at national level with the environment, education reforms and an overall reduction in illegal immigration. Steps are being taken to confront pull factors that lead to migrants making dangerous crossings. Measures being taken to clamp down on human traffickers. There is good global news including reduction in global poverty and wealth being shared more widely. The year 2024 will be eventful with a general election and the election of York and North Yorkshire’s first ever mayor.
