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.

Current campaigning fronts include:

  • Lobbying to improve countryside protection in new national planning policy. We have already achieved a great deal of success in this, but there is more to do
  • Fighting current proposals for massive increases in housing which would have a devastating effect on our county
  • Supporting local campaign groups where appropriate
  • Stopping the breaking up of Green Belt land by speculators into building plots, known as land-banking
  • Scrutinising and responding to consultations on Local Development Framework documents which will shape local planning policy over the coming years 
  • Campaigning against the fly-tipping which disfigures our countryside
  • Providing information for those wishing to engage in neighbourhood planning
