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.
As a branch we respond to Herefordshire Council consultations, such as the Herefordshire Local Plan and Hereford by pass. In 2013, we proposed the creation of a new AONB. We are also a statutory consultee for Neighbourhood Development Plans (NDPs) at regulation 14.
Herefordshire CPRE has a small group of planning volunteers who advise and comment on inappropriate development in the countryside. We are able to do our work, thanks to the support of our membership.
