We are CPRE, the countryside charity Hampshire working to promote the benefit of the countryside for everyone, wherever they live. 

Our charity works to:

 

Support communities to have their say on developments and changes in Hampshire.

Promote the benefit of the countryside to everyone, wherever they live.

Work with local and national government, and other organisations to promote planning policies that make the best use of land.

Raise awareness of the Hampshire countryside as a vital space for health and wellbeing.

Encourage care of our fields and hedgerows to help protect landscapes and wildlife.

Call for homes that local people can afford to be built in the right places across the country.

Celebrate and support businesses that give back to the Hampshire countryside.

Promote renewable energy that doesn’t damage the Hampshire countryside or wider environment.
