CPRE East of England
England’s countryside is precious, irreplaceable and finite – a beautiful
national asset for us all. Yet more and more of our green fields are being
destroyed by haphazard and badly planned developments. Too often these are
imposed on local communities who are increasingly powerless to stand up for the
places they love.
Stop the destruction of England’s countryside.
Support our three demands for better development:
Don’t sacrifice our countryside
Our open spaces are being destroyed unnecessarily.
Previously developed brownfield land should be re-used first to protect the
beauty and tranquillity of our countryside and breathe new life into our towns
A fair say for local communities
Local people are increasingly unable to stop the destruction of their towns and countryside. The cards are stacked in favour of powerful developers. We want a democratic planning system that gives communities a much stronger say in the future of their area.
More housing – in the right places
The country urgently needs more affordable homes for our rising population, including in villages and market towns. But they must be sensitively located, with excellent environmental standards and high quality design that enhances local character.
