CPRE

The Surrey Branch of the Campaign to Protect Rural England (CPRE) is a voice for all who cherish our green and pleasant land. We believe that a living countryside is important for everyone. We seek to keep our rural areas beautiful and productive; to preserve our country lanes and the unique character of our villages and small market towns.

CPRE is independent and non-political. We work alongside residents’ associations, parish councils, civic societies and environmental groups, using our knowledge and experience of the planning system to offer advice and innovative solutions to proposals for new development in Surrey, in order to protect our landscape, our open spaces, and our heritage. If you love Surrey’s countryside, pleaseĀ join the CPRE
