York is well known for having many beautiful green spaces but they all need careful management to preserve the natural environment.

Now residents near Little Hob Moor, off Tadcaster Road, are being asked for their views.

The council has delivered a letter to around 500 households in the immediate vicinity, asking questions like:

  • do you want an extra bench?
  • should the area by the East Coast Main Line become a wildflower meadow?
  • and do they cut the rest of the grass often enough?

Lib Dem Councillor Stephen Fenton, who represents the Dringhouses and Woodthorpe ward, told YorkMix that Little Hob Moor had become even more popular during lockdown.

Historically it is part of Micklegate Stray and is situated between the railway and Tadcaster Road with the entrance just opposite the Knavesmire.

“Recently residents wanted to plant a group of new trees so we found some ward funding to make that happen. What we want now is pull together more ideas to make the most of the land.”

The deadline for feedback is 2nd October.
