Wise words from 'Green Hero' Alastair Sawday

We were delighted to welcome Alastair Sawday to our CPRE Avonside Annual General Meeting one very windy evening in November. Alastair arrived by bike, rather windswept, in time to have tea and chat with CPRE members and volunteers before the event. Alastair has recently been awarded ‘Green Hero’ by Bristol Green Capital 2015, and he was incredibly modest about how he could justify such a title!

New research shows that local housing targets are driven by over-ambition rather than need.

The Campaign to Protect Rural England’s group in North Somerset was disappointed to learn of the decision by Government housing minister Brandon Lewis to uphold an increase in housing numbers for the district from 14,000 – democratically agreed with the local community in 2012 – to 21,000 - a 50% increase on the previous figure.

Eating local in the city

Low food miles, fresh food with little packaging? It’s what a lot of us look for, and for many of us CPRE supporters who don’t live in the countryside, it’s the Green Belt that provides the market garden that can deliver good, local food.
