The proposed development split public opinion sharply, and this has been reflected
in reactions to the refusal. However, many people who objected to this proposal
were not adverse to development per se, or to the heritage attraction element. It is
possible that O’Neill Associates and York Archaeological Trust will at some point
submit an application for a version which is less visually intrusive. Development
would, however, still impact upon the archaeology. Any future proposal must,
therefore, demonstrate that the benefits, in terms both of amenity value and
contribution to the archaeological record, will outweigh identified and potential levels
of harm.
