Welcome to CPRE West Yorkshire

The Campaign to Protect Rural England fights for a better future for your countryside. We believe that a beautiful, thriving countryside is important for everyone, no matter where they live, and we stand up for good decision-making about developments that affect it.

The West Yorkshire branch is focused on countryside issues in Leeds, Bradford, Calderdale, Kirklees and Wakefield Council areas but, as true Yorkshire men and women have always done, we also identify with the Moors, Dales, Vales, Towns and countryside of the whole of the historic County of Yorkshire.
