York Property Forum

York & North Yorkshire Chamber Property Forum 

The Forum acts as a ‘think tank’ for property issues affecting York and the wider district. The merger has strengthened its lobbying and representational activity on behalf of the sector by utilizing the Chamber’s links with City of York Council and other relevant public sector organisations.

York Property Forum sits within the Chamber’s portfolio of special interest groups, with membership of the York Property Forum included as part of the wider-Chamber membership package.
