Success for CPRE

Government recently made a bold change - CPRENorth Yorkshire contributed to the joint report by CPRE & Shelter. We've seen developers in the county buy up land, promise affordable homes then scream poverty and inability to provide the promised homes needed and replace them with market executive homes.  That loophole has been closed.




Hellifield Flashes - once the principle of development is established that's it.


It with restored confidence in the system that CPRENorthYorkshire is pleased to report that Planners have recommended the poultry farm application in the York Green Belt for refusal!

A focus on trustees!

An introduction to one of our trustees! Katie Atkinson


Each one of CPRENorthYorkshire brings professional skills to the board.  We start our intoduction with Katie Atkinson who joined us in January this year - and you'll see from her biography that we are very lucky to have her.  Katie works closely with the chair of the charity and each week they hold "Operations calls'.

This has moved the charity away from the old days where matters whent three months before being addressed!  We are always monitoring activity - good and bad in the county.  

Harrogate Borough Council have refused the application 17/04318/OUTMAJ at Kirkby Hill Harrogate

CPRENorthYorkshire are delighted that this application for 50 dwellings has been refused and were highly active (following requests from local people) in objecting to the proposeal and the revised scheme.




Our former CEO Shaun Spiers has written a most useful book - How to Build Houses AND Save The Countyside.  We all know it's possible but Shaun puts it in writing for the world to see.  The dedication page states the following:


....ALSO for the Campaign to Protect Rural England's HEROIC volunteers and staff, standing up for the countryside.....

That you!  So thank you from CPRENOrthYorkshire for being a volunteers and keeping us informed about planning issues good and bad in your area.  Where would we be without you.  Please take a bow.... you deserve it and Shaun, thank you from all at CPRENorthYorkshire.




This inappropriate or perhaps unlawful development has caused massive outrage in such small village in the Howardian Hills, we have been contacted on numerous occasions by members of the public asking for our help.

We contacted Ryedale District Council who responded swiftly.

They informed us that:

Following more letters and calls from more concerned residents in the Harrogate area, we have responded to two planning applications in this small village in one day!
