A CPRE policy briefing
In April 2015 a new company called Highways England took control of major roads. This is biggest shake-up in over a generation as to how the road network is run. This briefing explains how the new company will work, where its funding is focused and the opportunities for engaging with it to protect the countryside and rebalance the transport system towards smarter travel.
This report, and the research underpinning it, sheds new light on the scale of the energy problems we face and the solutions needed to tackle them. It explores the current realities of greening rural homes and community buildings. This report also considers how we can make the necessary cuts in carbon from housing and what this might mean for the countryside.
The Campaign to Protect Rural England (CPRE) commissioned Cambridge Architectural Research and Anglia Ruskin University to conduct research to fill a key gap in knowledge.
