Question mark over future of fountain in York city centre
6:27pm Thursday 15th August 2013 in News
A FOUNTAIN that has been a central feature in the region’s tourism capital for more than 20 years may never be switched on again.
The marble fountain in Parliament Street has been switched off since last year and City of York Council says its future is now to be reviewed as part of a scheme to improve the city centre.
Gill Cooper, head of culture, tourism and city centre, said the power supply to the fountain was removed when a nearby toilet block was demolished last year.
“The development of the fountain is part of the Reinvigorate York initiative to improve the city centre, which will see 14 different projects completed in the next two years,” she said.
“The future of the fountain will be considered as part of a wider scheme to re-energise Parliament Street and its junction with Piccadilly.”
