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.
