About Planning Help

With Planning Help, we want to show you how you can use the planning system to protect the countryside and promote urban regeneration.


About CPRE
We are people who care passionately about the countryside and campaign for it to be protected and enhanced for the benefit of everyone.

We promote the beauty, tranquillity and diversity of rural England by encouraging the sustainable use of land and other natural resources in town and country. Why not join us?

We campaign on the environmental and sustainability issues relating to new development and do not comment or give advice on planning proposals that do not involve these issues.

We have a branch in every county, over 200 district groups, nine regional groups and a national office in London, making us an effective combination of local and national campaigning, a powerful combination of effective local action and strong national campaigning.

The information in this site is for information and guidance only.

If you believe that you might be materially affected by a specific development proposal, you should contact your district council and, if necessary, a professional planning consultant.
