York Central Action have partnered with My Castle Gateway and there will be a panel discussion after the film to provide an opportunity to debate possible lessons for planning in York with reference to The Local Plan, Castle Gateway and York Central.

Film Synopsis

Arguably no one did more to shape understanding of the modern American city than Jane Jacobs, the visionary activist and author of “The Death and Life of Great American Cities” who fought to preserve urban communities in the face of destructive development projects. Here, she fights against the ruthless redevelopment projects of urban planner Robert Moses.
