Leeman Road Millenium Green


In 1998 the residents of the Leeman Road area were becoming concerned about the development of the local open spaces. They established a resident's committee to preserve this 6.5 acre site.

With the help of the City of York Council, the Leeman Road Millennium Green Trust (formerly known as LEAF) was established and was registered as a Charity (Reg.No 1077557) in 1999. The Council granted the Trust a 999 year lease on the site.

Funding was obtained from various sources and the area was landscaped, creating a pond, with areas of tree planting to encourage wildlife. The original meadow was preserved and is regarded as of special scientific interest.

There is an abundance of flora and fauna, butterflies, insects and minibeasts in this natural setting which is being added to year on year, 12 new trees and 200 widflower plants of 10 species in the last 12 months.
