About Us

CPRE Herefordshire campaigns for a sustainable future for our beautiful county.  Herefordshire is still one of England's more rural counties.  Its beautiful countryside, interspersed with historic market towns and villages, continues to support a traditional way of life.

Our core work involves working within the planning system to influence the protection of countryside character.  We advise members and non-members on planning issues and frequently comment on landscape issues.

Through reasoned argument and lobbying, we seek to influence public opinion and decision-makers at every level.

The Branch Committee work very hard to ensure that our views are heard where it matters - where the decisions are taken.

If you are interested in ensuring that the CPRE voice is even more effective in helping keep Herefordshire the place that you love and care for, please email us

CPRE Herefordshire made representation regarding the Local Development Framework (LDF) and continues to comment on Herefordshire Council consultations.

We work with other local organisations to prevent development which is inappropriate, unsustainable or damaging to the Herefordshire landscape

Planning, intensive livestock farming, the Hereford bypass and polytunnels are just a few of the issues CPRE Herefordshire volunteers are currently concerned about. Please take some time to explore our website and find out what else we do.

Members, supporters and volunteers are always needed and are most welcome. 

We are an independent charity, with strong links to our national office.

The History of CPRE Herefordshire

CPRE Herefordshire branch was founded in 1933 and is run by volunteers who are dedicated to protecting this most rural of English counties from being spoiled by inappropriate development.

We value the peace and tranquillity Herefordshire retains but are all too aware of how easily this can be eroded away, as it has in many other parts of England.
