Campaign to Protect Rural England
The Foundation Campaign to Protect Rural England (CPRE) was created in 1926 to protect rural landscapes and their natural values, as well as their beauty and tranquility. For over 80 years the CPRE has conducted national, regional and local campaigns in partnership with other organizations, governments, businesses and individuals aimed at promoting a sustainable future for rural English landscapes, which will be beneficial on environmental, economic and social levels. The CPRE analyses threats to the environment and landscapes and promotes positive solutions based on reasoned argument and political pressure, which it hopes will influence public opinion. The CPRE’s campaigns aimed at protecting and promoting landscapes as part of everyone’s heritage are centred above all on: landscape, planning and development, agriculture and food. Details of its campaigns can be found on its web page.
