The countryside champions

Our Organisation

CPRE functions at four levels:

  • National level (external link): our office in London, which is in touch with Whitehall and Brussels, campaigns to influence Government and European decisions that affect the countryside
  • Regional Level - South East Region: the region covers seven county branches - Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Hampshire, Kent, Oxfordhsire, Surrey and Sussex. It publishes a monthly bulletin.
  • County (branch) level: we have two campaigning groups - Planning & Policy Group and the Transport Group.
  • Local groups: our local groups were restuctured in 2010, to align with the boundary of the new South Downs National Park. The six groups work work with local communities at grass roots level to safeguard the rural environment, and welcome involvement of local CPRE members.

Additional Information

We have a small county office which orchestrates campaigns, manages fund-raising and carries out administration. Most of our work is done by volunteers, either on a county campaign basis or working for their local group.
