Who we are
We are CPRE Bedfordshire, the countryside charity. We want a thriving, beautiful countryside for everyone.
CPRE Bedfordshire campaigns for a beautiful and living countryside. We work to protect, promote and enhance our urban greenspaces and countryside in Bedfordshire to make them better places to live, work and enjoy, and to ensure the countryside is protected for now and future generations.
We are a small Bedfordshire based charity and part of the CPRE network.
We work for a sustainable future for Bedfordshire’s countryside by:
- Campaigning and engaging with the local planning process to influence planning decisions that impact our countryside in the areas of Bedford Borough, Central Bedfordshire and Luton Borough.
- Running our Living Countryside Awards to recognise the people, projects and enterprises that are enhancing our rural and urban environments.
- Organising events and other activities to promote to our members and the public the importance of our countryside and our work, and to support communities in their efforts to protect their local environment.
- Encouraging people to discover our countryside.
