England is a small country with a high population density and widespread, intense pressure for development. Nevertheless we still have large areas of incomparably beautiful countryside. CPRE exists to protect our natural landscapes from destruction and degradation and help maintain a thriving and vibrant countryside for the benefit of all.
Established in 1926, CPRE is a registered charity with about 60,000 members and supporters. The charity operates as a network with over 200 district groups, a branch in every county, a group in every region and a national office. Over 2,000 parish councils and 800 amenity societies belong to CPRE. This makes CPRE a powerful combination of effective local action and strong national campaigning.
