"The reason we've got a beautiful, beautiful green belt around this city is down to Ethel Haythornthwaite" - our chief executive Tomo Thompson on the legacy of our charity's founder. We're now fundraising to remember her. Details here from @SheffieldStar: https://www.thestar.co.uk/news/people/campaign-to-honour-ethel-haythornthwaite-the-woman-who-fought-to-make-sheffield-the-green-city-we-love-3331191
We are living through a make-or-break chapter in the story of life on Earth. Here’s how we save #NatureNow—and ourselves. https://nature.ly/3fkbY4S #TheRaceIsOn
The Government should enable all people to use more sustainable modes of transport, such as rail and bus, rather than focusing so much public money on new roads in rural places that will clog up quickly. It is an unsustainable approach the Government follows, despite rhetoric.
This is good news. Place making in our cities and towns is so important to saving our countryside from needless development.

Congratulations @SaveStonehenge. It shouldn’t have taken so much effort to protect our iconic heritage and environment. Time to reverse decades of car-dominated transport policy https://twitter.com/CPREWilts/status/1421128907684724743

Hedgerows are the humble heroes of our countryside: great for the climate, nature and people 🌍 🌻 🙆
That’s why we want to see more hedgerows across the countryside.
Sign our petition calling on the government to stand up for hedgerows #40by50 >> https://takeaction.cpre.org.uk/page/85848/petition/1?ea.tracking.id=twitter
We've lost half our hedgerows since 1945, intensifying nature's decline and hindering the fight against climate change.
But we can turn this around.
Tell the government to start planting and restoring 1000s of miles of hedgerows every year #40by50 >> https://takeaction.cpre.org.uk/page/85848/petition/1?ea.tracking.id=twitter
It’s been heartwarming to see the outpouring of love in Withington this week, celebrating both @MarcusRashford and the wonderful diversity in our communities ❤️
Great that @TransportActio2 are analysing the detail of @transportgovuk's Transport Decarbonisation Plan. It will be interesting to see how 4 lanes of diesel-powered HGVs servicing a Port and its highly polluting ships squares with that... eh @HighwaysEngland @PeelPorts ??? https://twitter.com/TransportActio2/status/1415197084559552512
We will be responding to the GM Places for Everyone consultation
Looking forward to CPRE's 'Brownfield toolkit workshop for the North' today..discussing how people can help to identify sites for redevelopment to save our valued greenspace. @CPRE
We eagerly await the Places for Everyone consultation document for the 9 authorities of Greater Manchester.
We hope the ambitions for a prosperous city region focuses on protection of the environment with a brownfield first approach.
Voluntary registration of land as a town or village green does not affect ownership but DOES secure strong protection from development #GrantAGreen @CPRE https://www.oss.org.uk/grant-a-green-campaign/
THREAD: Peers in the House of Lords debated the Environment Bill this week.
They agreed that we need an all-in deposit return scheme (DRS) as soon as possible, to cut litter, boost recycling and help our countryside 👇 1/6

For those interested in the spatial planning of Oldham have a look at the documents and make your comments by 29th August. It can help to ensure brownfield is reused before greenfield. https://www.oldham.gov.uk/info/200199/planning_and_building/1809/local_plan_review
