Issues we're dealing with

CPRE Herefordshire is working hard to resist changes we believe will irreparably damage the county’s unique landscape.

Consider what Hereford will look like when the proposed Hereford bypass encircles the city; the proposed 6,500 new homes to help pay for the bypass are built, increasing the size of the city by a third; up to 174 large wind turbines and 403 medium size turbines are planted on high ground; and soft fruit growers continue their expansion, covering acres of Herefordshire in plastic even within ‘protected landscapes’ such as the Wye Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB).

Careful planning is one of the most important ways in which we can control and protect our environment whilst ensuring that sustainable development is possible. Whether planning in your neighbourhood or a planning application for development on your doorstep, planning decisions affect us all.

Transport isn’t just a matter of building new roads or railway lines. It isn’t even about creating new bus routes or cycle lanes. Transport is usually just a means to an end – it gets us from one place to another.
