CPRE releases manifesto for the next government

Thursday, 07 November 2019 13:15

The December 12th election is a chance for all of us to demand that our precious countryside and urban green spaces are at the forefront of decision making - whether that be looking at the climate emergency, building new homes, public transport or the importance of local foods. 

At CPRE Lancashire, Liverpool City Region and Greater Manchester, we believe that our countryside and green spaces are there for all to enjoy, and we want to see policies that promote a healthier economy and happier communities. Together, we can send a message to Westminster to ask for the vital reforms that ca see this happen.

In our manifesto for the next government, we've identified four key areas where action needs to be taken. We want to see the next government: 

  • Tackle the climate emergency, implementing measures to reach net-zero emissions by 2045 at the very latest;
  • Improve access to green spaces for everyone, particularly for children and those from disadvantaged communities who do not currently have access;
  • Support a well-resourced planning system that empowers communities and promotes development that responds to their needs; and
  • Ensure the specific challenges faced by rural communities are addressed through meaningful investment in the rural economy.
