Local democracy during coronavirus

During coronavirus, we've made some changes to how we're running council meetings. See our coronavirus updates for more information on meetings and decisions.

Outside body

York Fair Trade City Steering Group




The Steering Group is a body required by York’s status as a Fairtrade City. Its role is to monitor York’s progress as a Fairtrade City – reporting annually to the Fairtrade Foundation – also to advise the local activist group (York Fair Trade Forum). Steering Groups must include a representative from the local authority.




Should be a Councillor but substitutes reps are acceptable.




Meetings are held 3 times per year.  A time commitment of approximately 8-10 hours per year, including meeting time, preparatory work and follow up actions.
