Yorkshire and the Humber Campaign to Protect Rural England

Skip to navigation

Yorkshire and the Humber region is divided into five geographical areas, originally defined by political boundaries. CPRE has a strong individual Branch presence within each one of these areas.

We believe a beautiful, thriving countryside is important for everyone, no matter where they live.

Unlike many environmental charities, CPRE has no vested interests – we own no land, rely solely on donations and grants, and are politically independent.

We make decisions with the head not the heart, as much as we love the countryside, and we are possibly the only green group which has a completely holistic approach. Planning, in particular, is all about looking at the bigger picture, and our wide remit means we have to consider the whole of the country – rural and urban – when creating policy.

We’re an environmental charity, with over 200 local groups, a branch in every county and 55,000 members, and supporters – including more than 2,000 affiliated parish councils.
