We work across Lancashire, the Liverpool City Region and Greater Manchester, with communities, businesses and government, to stand up for our countryside and green spaces.
We want to connect people to the countryside, wherever they live

Successful campaigning saves Green Belt in West Lancashire.
CPRE Lancashire celebrates the fact that Green Belt land will stay green following our engagement with the Burnley Local Plan process.
CPRE Lancashire is delighted that our support for local residents’ campaign against a new housing development on a greenfield site by Greenberfield Locks has been refused.
Join us on January 26th 2020 for an evening of stargazing at Beacon Fell led by Robert Ince.
Soil is a valuable asset and needs protection.
For those worried about the environmental harm from propised HS2
Yes, we had suspected acidisation the 'ugly sibling of fracking' would remain a threat to our rural places. The greenhouse gas emissions and other environmental threats are similar to fracking and it ought not to be allowed. @drillordrop @frackfreelancs @NorthWestFOE
Let's hope you can influence similar good embedding of clean transport for Liverppol2. Don't scrimp on Liverpool's key employment investment opportunity. HGV only based port would be utterly wrong.
We would love to know more about this good effort. Our Members love Lancashire's countryside. It is heartening to see real action on the ground. Keep up the good work.xxxx
Hope Rimrose Valley road is top of the list of where not to spend good tax payers money to the wrong use. Will read with interest. Let's embed smart investment in 2020 and beyond!
Well done Matt Thompson for championing the valuable role of planning. We hear from frustrated local communities all the time how proposals that fall short on design and developer contributions are granted. Communities deserve better quality outcomes. @RTPIPlanners @theTCPA
Bad air quality is bad for all our health and our planet. Planning new development, especially in rural areas, to integrate sustainable and active travel modes is more important than ever. We can't afford to ignore science. @CBTransport @FriendsMoss @saverimrose
Good to see Safeguarded Land being exactly that!
Great news! A new local plan to steer development and bring forward new affordable housing is most welcome.
An offer to support the Woodland Trust with a hedgerow starter pack. A great way to kick of 2020. Take a look. @WoodlandTrust @CityofTreesMcr
Exciting times for green infrastructure planning in Salford thanks to RHS project.
A disappointing decision for those against this development in the countryside. Evidences how the National Planning Policy Framework is eroding local democracy.
Shock as Government Planning Inspector rules in favour of building 70 new homes in Hoghton https://www.lep.co.uk/news/environment/shock-as-government-planning-inspector-rules-in-favour-of-building-70-new-homes-in-hoghton-1-10194864
Look after our countryside, enjoy and value it
Not sure this is entirely countryside related, but this animation is too good not to share https://www.facebook.com/2047807918850332/posts/2310433119254476/
Our rural places are rich with folklore..are you aware of any interesting customs near to you?
Do respond to this consultation if you haven't done so yet. It only takes 10 minutes and relates to how we use our green space. Deadline 1st February 2020. https://www.greatermanchester-ca.gov.uk/what-we-do/environment/ignition/
This case is a good example of a developer simply refusing to take no for an answer. Salford Council is right to save the countryside in this location and there are plenty of alternative site across the area.
What a fantastic way to repurpose a Christmas Tree! Absolutely love this...@Change4Preston @leponline
You are quite right. Of course we need to plan enough 'needed' homes, especially affordable, but our planning system should not be based on out of date data i.e. ONS 2014. The standard method is a flawed approach pushing houses to most expensive places. @EstherMcVey1
