The National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) has made significant changes to planning policy for housing which mean pressures for greenfield development and damage to the countryside are likely to increase. This briefing shows how local campaigning can ensure new housing is affordable and built in sustainable locations, while utilising brownfield sites and empty homes. The briefing includes campaign tips and an analysis of law and policy changes introduced by the Localism Act 2011 and the NPPF (March 2012).
Recruiting volunteers is always a challenge but finding the right Chair is particularly so. A good Chair will give direction and focus to work of your CPRE branch and provide strong leadership to your Trustees.
Finding a good fit for your group's needs is essential for your branch's good health and ongoing development so particular attention needs to be paid to the process of recruiting a new Chair. We have therefore, produced a comprehensive pack to guide you through this step by step.
Our PowerPoint presentation, 'Introducing the Campaign to Protect Rural England', is intended for audiences who may not be familiar with CPRE – from schools and local groups to potential members or even funders. It explains what we have achieved, what we campaign for, and how we will achieve our vision for the countryside.
