Join us as we try to save The Yorkshire Lass.
Hello! How do you fancy getting involved in an initiative with your local community that aims to:
1. Save The Yorkshire Lass in Knaresborough
A worthy local treasure facing demolition in favour of a residential dwelling once again. So far we’ve managed to get the building nominated as an ‘Asset of Community Value’, and we’ve put forward objections to the current planning application, giving good planning reasons.
2. Bring the former pub back to life for the benefit of all of us who live around here
We have a realistic vision to deliver it back to Knaresborough as a thriving community hub, arts centre, and tourist destination; an accessible social space ‘for the benefit of many’. What would you like to see it become?
We want your feedback, ideas, skills, passion, and help!
