Our aim is to protect the beauty, tranquillity and diversity of West Yorkshire’s countryside for everyone to enjoy, now and in the future.

We want to see:

sensitive, sustainable development that protects and enhances our green spaces;

thriving cities, towns and villages, connected by excellent public transport and not blighted by road traffic and pollution;

environmentally friendly farming and forestry.

We pursue our aims by:

scrutinising and challenging planning policies, planning applications and transport schemes;

undertaking research and building sound evidence to support our campaigns;

supporting community groups through training and collaboration;

advocating best practice in the design and management of buildings, landscapes and green spaces.
