Campaigns

Increasing food production while protecting our natural resources is one of the biggest challenges we will face over the next fifteen years. We need to learn from the past and capitalise on recent successes. It is essential that Government, the farming industry and environmental organisations work together to ensure farming can provide us with the high quality food and countryside we depend on’. So begins CPRE’s Vision for the future of farming and where it will be in our centenary year 2026. The vision sets out goals:

  • livestock are kept in good welfare conditions
  • food produced to high environmental standards
  • the UK grows around 50% of all orchard fruit purchased
  • local food enterprises are thriving
  • there are fairer milk prices for dairy farmers
  • green farming schemes have made enormous advances
  • there is much better use of by-products from timber-processing

The vision also states how that vision will be achieved.

Have you bought, or are you tempted to buy, a small plot of formerly agricultural land in the countryside in the hope that it may some day be granted planning permission for development? (Item updated 11 June 2015)
