About us

The Campaign to Protect Rural England (CPRE ) campaigns for a beautiful and living countryside. We work to protect, promote and enhance our towns and countryside to make them better places to live, work and enjoy, and to ensure the countryside is protected for now and future generations. Nationally we have over 60,000 supporters, a branch in every county and a national office in London.

In the East of England there are six branches Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Peterborough, Essex, Hertfordshire, Norfolk and Suffolk.   Between them, these six branches have over 6600 members and involve around 240 active volunteers.  They face increasing pressures as our region grows: increasing housing and development, new roads and transport issues, an increasing number of wind and solar energy farms, threats to the green belt. 

We work closely with other organisations in the East of England, attending meetings, contributing to consultations and helping to facilitate workshops and events.
