Our purpose

We seek to:

  • Monitor planning applications and where necessary, oppose those that are damaging to our Cornish landscapes, environment and rural way of life.
  • Lobby Councillors, MPs and Ministers in order to pursue the development of environmentally sound legislation on planning, good agricultural practice and public transport.
  • Encourage the development of brown field sites, the re-occupation of empty or under-occupied second homes, and the building of affordable homes in locations where there is work, transport and community.
  • Actively oppose the indiscriminate building of roads, along with the increase of road traffic and its causes.
  • Support and encourage sustainable agriculture, food production, fishing and other rural industries.
  • Support and encourage sustainable and environmental initiatives like tree planting and conservation on land and coastal waters.
  • Support and encourage tourism in Cornwall at levels consistent with the important infrastructure and environmental limitations imposed by Cornwall’s own very special nature.
