As a member of Yorkshire Greenspace Alliance, you will be benefit directly from our rigourous approach to fundraising, for the purpose of raising a legal challenge on behalf of all member groups fighting for their Green Belt or green space anywhere in the ‘Leeds City Region’.  Funds raised will be used exclusively to promote the raising of more funds to support consultation and attendance by a specialist barrister, initially at Leeds’ Site Allocation Plan hearing in October 2017, and also later at the Bradford Core Strategy hearing, probably in 2018.


Yorkshire Greenspace Alliance (YGA) welcomes affiliation – which is free – from any non-political regional group campaigning to protect their Green Belt and green space from inappropriate development. This includes groups facing any kind of challenge in the Green Belt or to their green spaces, woodland, parks, allotments and playing fields.

Together we will share our experience, expertise and connections. Your group will have access to YGA campaign promotional templates and materials, which are pre-branded with our graphics, but can be adapted to feature your own group logo and content.

You will become an important member in a growing network of fellow campaigners, all at different stages in their quests to save their green spaces. Some have been doing it for years, some just weeks – all share a common endeavour.

Interested?  Simply complete the form below, and we will be in touch.



YGA welcomes individuals into free membership of the group and will keep you updated by email on activities and progress within the organisation.
