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
It's coming home 🏴🏴👏👏💥💥
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

We hope you enjoy local walking opportunties. Lots of local history and countryside at Greater Manchester rural fringe.
There are lots of community groups coming together to voice concerns over harmful changes proposed via the planning reforms. Communities want to be heard, not silenced. Please share this among your networks and encourage groups to add a pin on the map.
