Our Vision

Our Vision

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

In West Yorkshire, CPRE works to protect, promote and enhance our amazing, beautiful countryside. We campaign to connect people to their countryside and empower them to shape it. We aim to demonstrate how immensely varied and valuable it is and defend it against threats, including inappropriate developments. We want a countryside that is fit for the 21st century and rises to the challenges posed by climate change.

21st Century Countryside

21st Century Countryside is our emerging agenda for the future of West Yorkshire’s countryside (including urban green spaces). This is all about the changes that we’d like to see, and to help make happen, to ensure that the many things people value about the countryside have a real influence on decision-making.
