Programme and Fund
The City Enhancement Programme and Fund was established to help preserve, restore, enhance, enrich and sustain the public realm — the streets and open space — of the city of York. It invests in projects that are suggested either by the Trust’s members or other members of the public. Projects are overseen by our volunteer Project Managers who, although unpaid, are highly professional. They enlist partners and funders, and supervise the design and implementation of each project.
Please help us in this work by making a donation towards the City Enhancement Fund, or by buying Ron Cooke’s book Changing the Face of the City.
