Lancashire - Campaign to Protect Rural England

Skip to navigation

We hope that enough needed jobs and houses are planned and built. But frankly, when we read the Council’s Preferred Option document that proposes a brand new local plan up to 2050, for more than 15,000 homes and 190 hectares of employment land to be developed primarily on prime farmland in the Green Belt, we were aghast. 

The Branch was delighted to respond to the County Council’s consultation on a revised draft of the Lancashire Minerals and Waste Local Plan (DMWLP). We hope that our comments help Lancashire County Council to progress a Joint Lancashire Minerals and Waste Local Plan that will best protect and enhance rural Lancashire as new development is planned.

2018 Christmas Appeal

A huge thank you to all of our members who have so far responded to our 2018 Christmas Appeal! It has been both heartening and interesting to read the comments of those who have donated to the appeal and we thought we would share with you the motivation behind some CPRE members’ decision to give extra financial support to the charity.

Hooray! Hammond Ground countryside saved!

CPRE Lancashire is delighted that local residents and Ribble Valley Borough Council successfully convinced a Planning Inspector to dismiss an appeal by the Trustees of Hammond Ground against a refused planning application due to harm to the countryside. 

On Saturday 29th. September CPRE Lancashire joined forces with Samlesbury Area Civic Society and Balderstone Women’s Institute who jointly undertook a local litter pick. Unbelievably, in just one hour 50 large refuse bags were filled.
