Membership and Meetings

Individual membership of York Environment Forum is £5; groups/organisations £10.

Membership of York Environment Forum is open to representatives from any appropriate groups, organisations or businesses with an interest in environmental matters, as well as individuals and parish councillors (subject to the terms of our Constitution).

In ‘normal’ times meetings are held monthly, second Tuesday of the month, at City of York Council’s West Offices (4.00-6.00pm) and observers are always welcome. From April 2020 these monthly in person meetings were held online and virtual.

We have a number of subgroups, which are in line with our themes. They are transport, waste, the natural environment, the built environment and One Planet York. The subgroups have regular meetings (transport), occasional meetings or operate ‘virtually’.

Minutes of in person meetings are posted on this website. The dates and focus of meetings are published in the monthly News section.

To attend a meeting as an observer, or apply for membership of York Environment Forum, please contact the Chair, currently Penny Bainbridge, just email to
