We believe a beautiful, thriving countryside is important for everyone, no matter where they live. Millions of town and city dwellers recharge their batteries with a walk or a bike ride in the local countryside, spend weekends and holidays in our National Parks, or enjoy fresh local produce. People who live in rural areas keep our countryside beautiful and productive.

Unlike many environmental charities, CPRE has no vested interests – we own no land, rely solely on donations and grants, and are politically independent. We make decisions with the head not the heart, as much as we love the countryside, and we are possibly the only green group which has a completely holistic approach. Planning, in particular, is all about looking at the bigger picture, and our wide remit means we have to consider the whole of the country – rural and urban – when creating policy.

CPRE Hampshire is a registered charity and its objects are to promote and encourage for the benefit of the public the improvement, protection and preservation of the countryside of Hampshire and its towns and villages, and the better development of the rural environment.

We believe that our effectiveness is increased by working in partnership with like-minded organisations.

The Planning and Policy Group (PPG) is a sub-committee of CPRE Hampshire's Executive Committee.

There are six district groups in Hampshire who monitor and influence planning decisions that affect the countryside at a local level. These groups also campaign on issues that affect their communities, take practical action to improve their local environment and run events to increase support for the countryside.
