JULY 2022:
We’re excited to confirm that as of 8th July 2022, Terry Avenue will reopen to all vehicles and pedestrians. Thank you for your patience with us through these works. 

THE YORK FLOOD ALLEVIATION SCHEME (FAS) is a partnership project with the Environment Agency to carry out major flood defence upgrades within the city.

WHY IS THIS WORK NECESSARY?
Situated on low-lying land where the River Foss joins the River Ouse, the city of York has always been prone to flooding. In recent years, however, the onset of climate change along with changes in the way land is managed upstream has caused these floods to become more severe.
     
HOW WILL THIS WORK AFFECT MY STAY AT ROOMZZZ APARTHOTEL?
From May 2021, this work will result in the loss of both pedestrian and vehicle access along Terry Avenue. This work is extremely important to the future of York and we are fully supportive of the project. However, this will mean alternative access to the hotel is needed for guests during this period and occasional daytime noise from the EA work carried out. Please accept our sincere apologies for any inconvenience this may cause. We have created this map to help and guide you in and around the aparthotel during this time.
