Legal challenge to Clifford's Tower visitor centre

  • Posted On: 27 April 2018

English Heritage's controversial scheme to build into the motte at Clifford's Tower is again under challenge. Campaigners including the York-based Council for British Archaeology argue that the planning permission granted in the face of huge opposition by York City Council must be overturned.
