Yorkshire Declaration News

The Yorkshire Declaration has reached its initial target of 100 signatories. It will be officially released in early April and we understand that the release will be accompanied by a media campaign. We believe that consideration is being given to holding some sort of conference on Yorkshire’s future on 31st July, but no further details are known at present. It is not clear who is behind the proposed conference, but it is not the same alliance of groups that helped bring about The Declaration.

Some clarity is also needed regarding how the public will be able to demonstrate their support for The Declaration once it has been formally released. The document is currently no longer available on the Citizen Network website. Transforming Yorkshire has not been consulted on this, but we have made our concerns known.

The text of The Yorkshire Declaration can be found here.
