Our policy programme is founded on ten pillars, built from policies proposed and voted on by our members. It sets out what Greens are in politics to do: to end the system that keeps hurting the environment and all of us who rely on it – and to build a better alternative.

Keighley and Ilkley Green Party is one of the local parties within the Green Party of England and Wales.
We aim to work for just, equitable and sustainable communities in Airedale and Wharfedale.
We focus our efforts through the electoral system, and through direct action and campaigns outside the formal political system.
We would love to have Green councillors from our area to supplement the two Green Party councillors currently on Bradford Council and we are working towards this.
In this election year 2018-19 Ilkley is a regional development ward. Dr. Ros Brown increased the Green Party vote share from 6% to 12% in the 2018 local election. We hope to increase this percentage again in the Ilkley ward in 2019, and will be working hard to get the Green Party message across.
Green representation is increasing at all levels of government, with currently:
Keighley and Ilkley Green Party meets monthly, usually on the last Wednesday of each month, adjusted for school holidays. Generally there is a public meeting one month and the next month, a business meeting for the executive committee. For more info, please see the Events and Meetings page
