Who we are

We are the countryside charity for Herefordshire. We campaign for a sustainable future for the countryside and rural communities in our county.

Herefordshire is still one of England’s more rural counties. Its beautiful countryside is interspersed with historic market towns and villages and it continues to support a traditional way of life. We’re working towards a Herefordshire countryside that’s rich in nature, accessible to all and playing a crucial role in responding to the climate emergency.

Our 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. We are also involved with community campaigns to address the pollution issues in the Wye catchment. Protecting ecosystems, rivers and soils is critical for climate change and our legacy for future generations.

If you’d like to help us campaign for a sustainable future for our beautiful county, please contact us.
