The partner organisations in North Yorkshire care about the environment and how it is managed. We are committed to making the county a place where people enjoy living and working by raising awareness and promoting local initiatives which balance social, economic and environmental issues.


North Yorkshire and York Local Nature Partnership

North Yorkshire and York Local Nature Partnership (LNP) has a vision to see the natural environment of North Yorkshire and York conserved, enhanced and connected across the whole LNP area for the benefit of wildlife, people and the economy.

Minerals and Waste Joint Plan

North Yorkshire County Council, City of York Council and North York Moors National Park Authority have decided to produce a Minerals and Waste Joint Plan covering all three planning authority areas.

The Minerals and Waste Joint Plan will, once finalised, set out new planning policies for minerals and waste developments across all three areas which will guide decisions on planning applications up to 2030.
