Tranquil places

Parks and gardens can provide vital oases of tranquillity in busy towns and cities, and the countryside, from our national parks to the more ‘ordinary’ countryside, is a wonderful place to ‘escape from it all’ and recharge our batteries. Tranquillity can be damaged by the intrusive sights and sounds of man-made structures such as new roads, poorly-designed lighting and power lines. We campaign to ensure national and local policies value the tranquillity of the countryside and protect it from poor development decisions.
