The Yorkshire Party is a progressive political party made up of autonomous local groups and individuals who are united by a shared belief that Yorkshire needs a voice at European, national and regional level.
The Yorkshire Party believes it is time to do politics differently. Across our region there are 1,225 elected councillors, who on average, only have a say over 1.5% of their budget. That means we are electing people who do not have the power make necessary change happen. Instead, the majority of decisions that affect Yorkshire are being made in Westminster.
We call for a Yorkshire Assembly (with real powers similar to Scotland) so that decisions that affect our region can be made in our region. We also call for more powers to be handed to local and parish councils.
