Yorkshire Greenspace Alliance is formed to help fight developers
Campaigners fighting to save green space from the “predatory actions of developers” have formed a new Yorkshire alliance.
An inaugural meeting of the Yorkshire Greenspace Alliance was held in Rawdon on Saturday, September 28.
The alliance is the brainchild of a steering group with members from the Campaign to Protect Rural England, Wharfedale and Airedale Review Development and Kirklees Community Action Network.
The organisation said: “We strongly believe that by working together – sharing knowledge, expertise and resources – we will collectively have a much stronger influence on planning issues at local, regional and national level. We hope that other groups who share our aims will be inspired to join us.”
Anyone interested in supporting the alliance should contact David Ingham, whose details are on wardyorkshire.org, or Robert Bamforth at email@example.com.
