The voice for devon’s countryside


A failed planning system, and a government policy to build millions more houses than we need – of the wrong type, at the wrong price, in the wrong places – means that today Devon’s countryside is threatened as never before. CPRE was founded to preserve and protect the rural environment, and has been doing just that since 1926.

Devon CPRE is an independent local charity that fights to prevent poor planning and bad policies destroying the rural landscapes that are Devon’s unique heritage. We offer professional planning expertise and a wealth of experience to help our members fight inappropriate development throughout the county.

We’re funded solely by members’ subscriptions, donations and legacies.

Please join us. Please support us. Your countryside needs you.
