What we do

Ouse Washes, Cambridgeshire Ouse Washes, Cambridgeshire

We campaign nationally and locally for positive solutions for the long-term future of the countryside. Nationally, we produce in-depth research and sound arguments to press the government, Parliament and other decision-makers to support the countryside – by safeguarding precious Green Belts, promoting urban renewal and restricting development on greenfield sites, campaigning for the protection of our most important national landscapes as well as the countryside on our doorstep.

We strive to protect the countryside from unnecessary built-development by encouraging planning authorities to use previously-developed land before greenfield sites.

We scrutinise and comment on regional and district-wide planning documents.  We examine individual planning applications which affect the countryside (e.g. large housing schemes – free standing new settlements or urban extensions, windfarms, and new roads or widened roads such as the A14)
