CPRE Hertfordshire campaigns

80% of Hertfordshire is countryside, much of it in the Green Belt, protecting us from coalescence with London and built areas from coalescence with each other. CPRE Hertfordshire has been standing up for the Hertfordshire countryside for over 80 years.

CPRE Hertfordshire welcomes the opportunity to comment on the Herts Eastern Area GTP and the measures to encourage sustainable travel. We are concerned however that the document aligns with
the objectives of the approved Local Transport Plan 2018 (LTP) when we believe that it should seek more broad ranging objectives relating to climate change and the new policy agenda rather than
appearing to believe that we can build our way out of traffic congestion.

CPRE Herts comments on neighbourhood plans

“Luton Airport has asked its owner, Luton Borough Council(LBC), for permission to increase passenger numbers and to relax conditions, that the airport has not achieved, limiting on aircraft noise.  If you do not want more aircraft noise or think that we should all fly less, please take a look at our response and join us in asking LBC to say no”.

 

The closing date for comments to Luton Council is 17th February.

21/00031/VARCON | Variation of Conditions 8 (passenger throughput cap), 10 (noise contours), 22 (car parking management), 24 (travel plan) and 28 (approved plans and documents) to Planning Permission 15/00950/VARCON (dated 13th October 2017) to accommodate 19 million passengers per annum and to amend the day and night noise contours. | London Luton Airport Airport Way Luton

 

When did you last see the Milky Way, that pale band which appears to arch across the night sky, formed from many billions of stars which make up our own galaxy?
Our view of the stars is a source of infinite amazement for scientists and casual observers alike. Once again this year CPRE is asking people from all across the country to become citizen scientists and join in with its Star Count. Choose a clear night between February 6th and 14th, look up at the constellation of Orion and let CPRE know how many stars you can spot.

Our volunteer Elizabeth Hamilton has been photographing some of the wildlife in her garden. She has produced these guides to help you connect with the wildlife you might encounter in your garden or out in parks and the countryside.
