A 21st Century Countryside for West Yorkshire

CPRE West Yorkshire care about the future of the Countryside in West Yorkshire which is fit for the challenges of the 21st Century.

There needs to be a genuine, concerted programme of action across West Yorkshire to tackle climate change, carbon emissions and biodiversity. We need to champion creative and sustainable solutions to devastation by flooding and moorland fires. We need to find ways to help people reconnect with nature and to embrace active travel. 

Our villages, towns and cities need more trees and green spaces, and our countryside needs to be resilient, mitigate climate change and foster biodiversity.

New homes need to be well-designed and use minimal energy.

We will campaign on these issues to enhance our environment and create a better future for our countryside and for our communities.
