Green Councillors in Kirklees

The Green Party in Kirklees has made progressive gains at both a Local Authority and Parish level since Nick Harvey first became a Green Party Councillor for Newsome ward 1996. Andrew Cooper is now elected to serve in this ward until 2012.

After the first win in Newsome ward, the Green Party went on to win and gain control of all three seats, then hold Newsome through each successive local election, even after boundary changes in 2004.

Ward Surgery and contact details of the present Local Authority Councillors for Newsome and Kirkburton can be quickly found using the links.

In addition to the your Local Authority councillors, the Green Party has seen increasing voter support across Kirklees and for the electoral period ending May 2011 it has thirteen Parish seats. Eleven are within the Kirkburton Ward where we are now the largest party group. Since May 2007 we also have one Parish Councillor on Holme Valley Parish Council and one on Denby Dale Parish Council. Details of Parish Councillors can be quickly found below using the links.

Our continued public support has been largely due to the work done by the Green Party with and on behalf of local communities and the positive impact of green policies in the Kirklees area. Across Kirklees our vote is growing with strong support not only in the Newsome and Kirkburton Wards but also in a number of wards in other Colne Valley and Huddersfield constituencies and in Dewsbury, where a local branch was formed in 2006.

To all those who vote for us, thank you. The Green Party Councillors and team are pleased to represent and support your community.
