Take Action in Herefordshire

Be Vigilant For Planning Applications Near You

Our self-help guidelines can help you object

The Government's National Planning Policy Framework has seen damaging developments approved in precious open farmland and Green Belts, even in Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty like the Wye Valley AONB.

This is despite large areas of brownfield land being ready for development which could revitalise our towns and cities.

The threats to our countryside are urgent and real. Councils who have so far failed to get a local plan in place are now subject to the ‘presumption in favour of sustainable development’ as contained in the NPPF. "The Government’s rhetoric is all about localism, but it is now clear that local communities are increasingly powerless to prevent damaging development even in the most sensitive locations".

PLAN - Planning Area Local Network

CPRE Herefordshire has a small but dedicated network of volunteers who monitor planning applications in their district or area.

Could you spare just a couple of hours a week to support the team in your area?
