Lancashire - Campaign to Protect Rural England

Skip to navigation


Hooray, CPRE Lancashire is celebrating as local democracy saves the countryside!  Following a change in political leadership in Trafford in May 2018, two proposals for development on Green Belt protected land have been withdrawn.

On 16th April 2018 CPRE responded to the public consultation by the Transport for the North (TfN) on its Strategic Transport Plan (STP).  The STP covers 20 or so separate highway authority areas and sets out ambitious plans for investment over the next 30 years. For details, see the Transport for the North's website.

CPRE Lancashire has strongly objected to and recommended refusal of the hybrid planning application (Ref: 00997/17) for the major golf and housing development in the Over Hulton, Bolton by Peel Holdings.
