At a full meeting at Leeds Civic Hall on 5th October 2010, members of the Green Party in Leeds agreed to the formation of a city wide party.

Proposing the motion Cllr. David Blackburn (Farnley & Wortley) said that a city wide party would provide a forum for members living outside the active branches, and could provide support for the growth of new ward parties with the City.

Supporting Cllr. Blackburn, Martin Hemingway from Headingley Green Party stated that the branch would not replace the current branches, but would provide the focus for growth of the party in the City.

After several further meetings to draw up a constitution, the Inaugural Meeting of the Leeds Green Party took place on 24th February 2011 at the Civic Hall. The Inaugural Meeting saw the election of the new Officers, some final amendments to the constitution, and the start of the process towards setting up a bank account. The new party is now able to concentrate on the coming elections and campaigning.
