CPRE Local election manifesto 2018

The Campaign to Protect Rural England (CPRE) campaigns for a beautiful and living countryside for everyone to value and enjoy.

We are calling on all parties to develop better policies so we can: build the right houses in the right places, improve transport policy, protect dark skies and reduce light pollution, and continue to treasure our precious countryside.

This manifesto sets out our key asks for candidates in the May 2018 local and district elections.
