CPRE East of England


Robin Burkitt Alison Greenwood Straw bales in Norfolk




The most up-to-date statement of the main issues facing the CPRE is available on the CPRE CPRE website.  You may like to receive the monthly email campaign update by signing up on the national website (under campaigns section).


#FrackturedCommunities: The government is consulting on proposals to streamline the planning process for fracking – disregarding widespread opposition and posing huge risks to our countryside.

If these proposals go ahead, getting planning permission for non-hydraulic exploratory drilling could be as easy as for building a conservatory or a fence. And decisions will be forced from national government, stepping over local decision makers and communities’ wishes.

CPRE has always believed that the concerns of local people must be at the heart of the planning system, but these proposals completely undermine this principle.  We need your support – please sign our petition, write to your local council leader or make a donation.  To find out more about this campaign, see http://www.cpre.org.uk/what-we-do/energy-and-waste/fracking/frackturedcommunities
