Campaign to Protect Rural England: CPRE Hampshire Branch
CPRE Hampshire exists to help protect the beautiful, tranquil countryside of Hampshire. CPRE Hampshire volunteers are continually campaigning at the heart of planning processes to achieve within Hampshire:
CPRE is a national organisation run on a national, regional & county branch level, and very importantly at the district level.
The charity is dependent on volunteer activity for campaigning and fundraising, and we encourage more members to improve the level of campaign support, to spread the word of CPRE's work to other people and to increase the base for volunteers. More voluntary campaigners are needed to help our work on planning, rural and transport issues and for media relations support and fundraising.
CPRE works together with policy-makers, other voluntary organisations and the general public ensuring appropriate requirements are met and not at the expense of the countryside.
