The countryside champions

Local Groups

CPRE Hampshire has six local groups who monitor planning and countryside policies, and organise events and fund-raising activities in their area. A key activity for all groups is responding to consultations on local plans and getting to grips with the impact of localism.

What's Going On? (February 2015). Each group provides news on their activites. You will find their latest quarterly news update on the respective group page (links below).

The six current local groups are as follows

Group Restructuring (Spring 2010)

In Spring 2010 our local group structure was re-organized to align more closely with the boundaries of the South Downs National Park and the government's South Hampshire Sub-Region planning area. As a result a new group - the South Downs & Central - was formed, comprising the Hampshire part of the South Downs National Park and the remaining parts of the former East and Mid Hampshire groups. In addition, a new South Hampshire District Group now covers the area of the South Hampshire Sub-Region.

The page 'A New Way of Working' gives more information about this restructuring. Details of the local groups are shown below. A comparison table shows the relationship of our current groups to the former district groups.
