CPRE Northern Lincolnshire - Campaign to Protect Rural England

Skip to navigation

We believe a beautiful, thriving countryside is important for everyone, no matter where they live. Millions of town and city dwellers recharge their batteries with a walk or a bike ride in the local Green Belt, spend weekends and holidays in our National Parks, or enjoy fresh local produce. People who live in rural areas keep our countryside beautiful and productive.

Unlike many environmental charities, CPRE has no vested interests – we own no land, rely solely on donations and grants, and are politically independent. We make decisions with the head not the heart, as much as we love the countryside, and we are possibly the only green group which has a completely holistic approach. Planning, in particular, is all about looking at the bigger picture, and our wide remit means we have to consider the whole of the country – rural and urban – when creating policy.

 

CPRE Northern Lincolnshire was originally set up in 1976 (then called South Humberside CPRE) to take account of Local Government boundary changes. Prior to that it was part of Lincolnshire CPRE. Campaigns have included: out-of-town supermarkets; destruction of ancient woodland; the industrial expansion of the south Humber bank; wind turbines; hedgerow removal; greenfield housing development. The geographical area covered by the group is that of the North and North East Lincolnshire Council areas.

We’re an environmental charity, with over 200 local groups, a branch in every county and 55,000 members, and supporters – including more than 2,000 affiliated parish councils.
