Lancashire - Campaign to Protect Rural England

Skip to navigation

CPRE Lancashire seeks an experienced planner for a new part-time role, to provide technical support and training to CPRE planning volunteers across Lancashire, Liverpool City Region and Greater Manchester, as well as directly handling some priority planning issues. This is a paid, home-based role, 2.5 days per week. Closing date: 16th August 2019.

CPRE Lancashire has developed the Brownfield Land Register Toolkit to facilitate our work with planners and members of the community to identify sites that are missing from Local Authority Brownfield Registers, with the aim of reducing pressure to develop in the countryside by highlighting previously-developed sites, which are generally in more sustainable locations.

CPRE Lancashire is recruiting for a number of new volunteer posts this month; we are seeking an events organiser, three planning volunteers, and 'eyes and ears' volunteers across Greater Manchester, Lancashire, and Liverpool City Region. No experience is necessary as we will provide training. We think Lancashire's countryside is a wonderful asset and we need your help to keep it that way!

CPRE Lancashire has responded to extra documents submitted to the Planning Inspectorate by Peel Holdings, regarding Peel's application for housing and a golf course at Hulton Park.  The Secretary of State, after calls by CPRE Lancashire and others, viewed the proposal as a significant matter for a ‘call-in’ for his own determination. 

CPRE Cheshire and Lancashire are united with local residents' groups in battling plans by St Helens Council for a road linking vast swathes of countryside and the former Parkside Colliery site. 

'Commercial confidentiality' is preventing adequate regulation of Cuadrilla’s exploration for shale gas at its Preston New Road site.
