Welcome to CPRE South West's web site. We are part of the Campaign to Protect Rural England, a national charity
(reg no 1089685).

The seven branches of CPRE, Cornwall, Devon, Dorset, Gloucestershire, Somerset, Avonside and Wiltshire, work collectively to influence regional decision-making processes.

Our main regional campaigns


Regional Spatial Strategy (RSS)
- This is the main focus of our regional work. Click here for our submission on the draft Regional Spatial Strategy (August 2006), including the consultancy reports we have commissioned on the housing and economic assumptions (Covering letter includes a full schedule of the files that make up our response). The RSS will replace Regional Planning Guidance for the South West (RPG10) and will include housing allocations for individual districts.
Click here for copies of our statements on the matters to be discussed at the forthcoming Examination in Public.

Planning and Housing - We campaign for a more environmentally friendly and sustainable approach to development: lower levels of new housing overall ( with an increased proportion of affordable homes to meet local need); urban renaissance; and improved use of brown field land.

Energy and climate change - We campaign for regional strategy and policies that include energy conservation measures and guidance for renewables that will protect the South West's landscapes.

Transport and Tranquility - We campaign for a more sustainable approach to transport regionally. Our main focus is the Regional Transport Strategy (the Transport chapter of the RSS). It will inform the next round of Local Transport Plans in the South West.
See "Our Work" for full details of our submissions.
