About us

Cornwall CPRE is an independent charity and our policies and objectives are to protect Rural Cornwall.  We are financially independent and separate from National CPRE, but we liaise and work with them on matters of common interest.  We share a CPRE logo but our policies and purposes may sometimes be different to accommodate the often unique needs of Cornwall.  Our core mission is to care for and protect Cornwall’s countryside and rural way of life.  When conditions permit we will resume local events such as tree planting, tours and countryside walks. 

In the meantime, if you require assistance with a planning case, you do not need to be a member because our first priority is to protect the Cornish countryside.  It is likely we will be able to provide help or advice. However, your support as a donor, member or as a volunteer will help us to do this more effectively. If you are able to help us with a donation, please use this link. https://www.cprecornwall.org/donation/
