CPRE warns that document intended to tackle parliamentary concerns undervalues environmental impacts.
Shaun Spiers, CPRE chief executive, cut the ribbon on a pioneering development of affordable and environmentally-friendly homes by the Hastoe Housing Association in Dartmoor, Friday 17 October.
CPRE is concerned that a new THINK! road safety campaign tells drivers that 60 mph remains an appropriate speed on rural roads, despite 60% of traffic fatalities occurring on them.
A new report by environment and transport groups including CPRE is calling for £3 billion to be invested over the next five years in a range of 'green retrofit' improvements for existing roads.
CPRE's second Housing Foresight paper argues that the Government can do more to protect green spaces by facilitating house building on brownfield land.
CPRE paper finds the failure to meet unrealistic land supply targets is cited as a reason for development in 72 per cent of appeals.
