CPRE Lancashire volunteer Amelia Furness, who is a student at the University of Liverpool, has written an article for us highlighting the importance of the countryside, urban green spaces and the Green Belt. 

CPRE Lancashire, Liverpool City Region and Greater Manchester urges the Environment Agency to refuse  Cuadrilla’s application for a sixth Variation of the Environmental Permit for its Preston New Road (PNR) operations. 

The Campaign to Protect Rural England (CPRE) has launched a manifesto calling on local and mayoral election candidates of all parties to support the rights of all people to enjoy our countryside and green spaces, promoting a healthier economy and a happier community.

Portside North Fracking Inquiry

Jackie Copley, Planning Manager for CPRE Lancashire was commissioned by Frack Free Ellesmere Port and Upton, the Rule 6 Party, to represent opposition to a shale exploration application.  The proposal site is situated on Portside North in Ellesmere Port.  Although an urban location, it was considered as a matter in-directly relevant to CPRE in that should the use was allowed, the employment use would be displaced elsewhere and probably require greenfields in countryside to be allocated instead. 

CPRE Lancashire is looking forward to seeing the ‘radical rewrite’ of the Greater Manchester Spatial Framework if approved at the Combined Authority meeting on Friday 11th January 2019, based on the announcement by Andy Burnham, Greater Manchester Mayor.
