CPREThe Surrey Branch of the Campaign to Protect Rural England (CPRE) is a voice for everyone who wishes to save our countryside and open spaces. We want to safeguard the Green Belt. We want to ensure that development is kept within sustainable limits, and that as much as possible is located on derelict land in existing urban areas. We want to protect our country lanes, and safeguard the unique character of our villages and rural communities.

Surrey is the most heavily wooded county in England and 70 per cent of its area is Green Belt. Yet now the pressure for development is threatening many of our remaining green spaces. The Surrey countryside and Green Belt will continue to be eroded by development unless we rally to its defence. That is why we are inviting you to explore our website, and if you agree with us, join the CPRE
