How to get more involved with York Green Party!

If you want a Green future for York and the wider world we'd like your support. We already have 4 local councillors who make their voices heard on these issues. With your help, we can increase this number at future elections. We need you to help us campaign, deliver the leaflets, raise the money, and build a dynamic, effective local party and perhaps even stand to be a councillor or paper candidate!

If you want to help us, we'd like to hear from you.

Phone York Green Party on 01904 636239 or email office@yorkgreenparty.org.uk

Consultations your views are needed for: 

Make your comments to government on York’s Local Plan


York residents are being urged to take the opportunity to make final comments on the city’s Local Plan.


A six-week consultation starts Wednesday 21 February as the council prepares to submit the plan – which will drive York’s economic growth and determine how the city changes over the next 15 years and beyond – to the government for Examination.


The council’s ‘publication draft’ is the result of extensive studies and consultation with residents, landowners, developers and statutory consultees like government agencies


Comments made during this consultation will go direct to the government, to be considered by a Planning Inspector at an Examination in Public. 


The council is stressing that this consultation is different because the Examination will only consider certain issues about the plan, and has produced guidance to help residents make comments which the Inspector can use.


You can find out how to make your comments, and what information the government’s Planning Inspector will be able to consider, in a special booklet being distributed to every household in the city.


The booklets will be delivered to every household in the city alongside - but not inside - another local publication.

If you haven’t received your household’s copy by Monday 26 February, please request one through localplan@york.gov.uk or call 01904 552255.


You can see all the same information, how to respond and view the full Publication Draft and supporting documents:

-         Online at www.york.gov.uk/localplan

-         In any York library or at the council’s  West Offices


All responses must be made by midnight on Wednesday 4th April 2018 to ensure they can be considered by the Government.



WW2 Commemorations

How do you think York should commemorate the 100 year anniversary of the end of WWI next year? CYC would like to know your ideas, or details of any events you're planning at WW1Commemorations2018@york.gov.uk as soon as possible and they’ll co-ordinate plans.

Petition - SAVE OUR NHS YORK -

York Teaching Hospital NHS Foundation Trust are “actively exploring” an alternative model for delivering estates and facilities service by setting up a limited liability company to run the porters, caterers, cleaners, maintenance staff and more.

This type of venture, described by one Member of Parliament as a “VAT scam” will ultimately lead to lower wages and poorer conditions for hundreds of staff, and amount to “backdoor privatisation” of the NHS. We ask that the Trust halts the exploration and looks to care for its employees as part of the National Health Service.

Please sign the petition and circulate !
