CPRE Northumberland fights for a better future for our countryside. We work locally to protect, shape and enhance a beautiful, thriving countryside for everyone to value and enjoy.
CPRE Northumberland is part of a national charity, CPRE The Countryside Charity, which has more than 200 local groups, a branch in each county and 60,000 members and supporters.
Run by a dedicated team of volunteers, the branch monitors and responds to planning applications for proposed developments which may affect our countryside and makes comments on local planning issues such as rural housing and transport.
We also try to raise awareness about countryside issues among local people. We have an events programme ranging from local litter picks to guided walks in the National Park, talks and quizzes which are open to members and non-members alike.
