With over 70,000 acres of land, Yorkshire Water is one of the region's largest landowners.
Our estate covers the whole of Yorkshire but is predominantly located on the eastern flanks of the Pennines and in Nidderdale.
A lot of our land is used to collect the raw water we treat for drinking and is tenanted by farmers as well as being used for recreation by our customers.
We seek to be exemplar landowners and landlords working with a wide range of stakeholders. We own approximately 11,300 hectares of land, designated as Sites of Special Scientific Interest (SSSIs). One key project is to get 95% of this land in 'recovering' condition, including at least 10% into 'favourable' condition by the end of March 2020. This is an ongoing project with lots of work to do, with just over 98% currently in 'recovering' or better but only 2.7% in 'favourable' condition.
We are looking for a partner that can ensure Humberstone Bank Farm is managed “Beyond Nature” and help us deliver on our aspirations to maximise the societal benefit from this important part of our estate. We will assess proposals against this list of potential values to society and our business. The more we can maximise these benefits the better. Please note all parties will need to qualify their intentions for the site before arranging a site viewing.
We would like to invite you to explore this opportunity with us. We’re really looking forward to working with you to develop innovative ideas as to how Humberstone Bank Farm can be managed “Beyond Nature”. Please take a moment to download and read the attached partnership plan.
Proposal submissions can be made by filling in the form on the downloadble PDF and must be completed and returned by Friday 8th April by emailing email@example.com or by post.
Postal submissions must be addressed as follows;

We take care of all of our stunning countryside and invite you to come and explore it.
Whether you fancy a gentle stroll around a reservoir, a bike ride with the family, a bit of pony trekking or an afternoon's fishing or sailing, there's plenty to choose from.

We have powers and duties, allowed by the Water Industry Act 1991.
The Act allows, and in some cases requires, us to do these works. It also lays down some rules for us to follow when we lay, alter or maintain pipes and their associated accessories.
In some cases we may have to lay pipes in land which is in private ownership or occupation. When we do so we follow the Code of Practice for Entry on to Private Land and comply with other relevant legislation.
This code does not affect any other rights or powers that you or we may have but certain provisions in the Code will not apply in some circumstances. Read our Code of practice for more information.
We also carry out works in the highway and every effort is made to keep disruption to a minimum. If you're a business located on the highway you may feel that our work has affected your trade. For more information contact us.

We own over 29,000 Hectares of land throughout the counties of Yorkshire and North Derbyshire.
Our extremely varied portfolio ranges from operational assets to reservoirs, vast open moorlands to catchment land.
These are only a small selection and all of our land within reason has the potential to be used as shoot location. More information on filming opportunites can be found in the leaflet on the right. If you would like to contact us regarding a filming enquiry then please email us.
All requests for access must be submitted; along with all necessary health & safety documentation appropriate to the task.
