CPRE Avonside’s wonderful volunteers celebrated 90 years of CPRE campaigning at our Annual General Meeting on November 12th

Brexit vote offers chance for farming to become more diverse and environmentally resilient, say countryside campaigners

CPRE Avonside will launch a brand new Community Litter Warden Scheme tomorrow (17th August, 10.30) at Bristol Zoo to help tackle the problem of litter in Bristol

This evening, CPRE Avonside is hosting an event for local communities all over the West of England who have a keen interest in the future of their local countryside.

Many of our local towns and villages are facing the prospect of hundreds of new houses on their doorsteps, and local planning authorities seem powerless to prevent them. Local communities feel that their voices aren’t being heard in important decisions being made about the countryside they treasure. Proposed changes to planning policy could make this situation even worse.
