CPRE Hertfordshire is the county branch of the Campaign to Protect Rural England. Founded in 1928, we are a separate registered charity. Our small number of part-time staff and army of volunteers celebrate and protect Hertfordshire's countryside for all to enjoy.


  • We promote the beauty, tranquillity and diversity of rural Hertfordshire by encouraging the sustainable use of land and other natural resources in town and country.
  • We operate through the planning system, screening planning applications countywide and raising the alarm where the countryside is threatened.
  • We influence planning policy through the local development framework process.
  • We offer advice and support to individuals and local groups embarking on planning campaigns.
  • We lobby for sustainable transport policies and safer country lanes.
  • We run the CPRE Hertfordshire Rural Living Awards
  • We organise a children's art competition celebrating the Hertfordshire countryside
