Our history

CPRE Hertfordshire celebrated its 90th Anniversary in 2018.

It was founded following a conference on regional planning held in the county in November 1928. CPRE nationally had been set up two years earlier at a time when loss of countryside to the rapid growth of urban areas had become a national issue.

To help celebrate our milestone anniversary, we decided to document the history of CPRE nationally and in Hertfordshire in a series of articles. You can read more about our history here, and note the old “branding” of the charity, itself a part of our history.
