Housing and planning

Good land-use planning is the unsung hero of environmental protection. Good planning can help slow the growth in road traffic, encourage urban regeneration, curb urban sprawl, protect the beauty and tranquillity of the countryside and safeguard wildlife habitats.

The effective use of planning policies and decision making processes are essential to continuing to ensure development takes place in the ways which do the least damage. CPRE and its members have been fighting for the future of the English countryside since 1926. Recent national campaigns that the local branch has supported have included:

  • The National Planning Policy Framework;
  • The Local Development Framework; and
  • The Localism Act.

The CPRE Northern Lincolnshire branch continues to work to ensure that the countryside, in it's geographical location, is protected by responding to threats such as:

  • Wind turbine proposals across northern Lincolnshire;
  • Core Strategy options for North and North East Linoclnshire Councils;
  • Large scale housing development proposals in Humberston;
  • 500-cow dairy unit at Bonby;
  • Expansion of Tesco in Brigg.

We also campaign actively on issues such as:

  • Litter and fly-tipping;
  • Tranquility and the quality of life;
  • Dark skies;
  • Raising awareness of the beauty of the local countryside.
