There are many planning challenges currently facing Somerset including housing, wind turbines, solar parks, Hinkley C power station, quarrying, waste and transport infrastructure. We consider each one on its merits and ask: it is appropriate? Is it needed? What impact will it have on our countryside and our communities?  

Good land-use planning is the unsung hero of environmental protection and has always been one of CPRE's top campaigning priorities.

Our busy team of volunteers try to keep an eye on major planning applications which could cause significant harm to our countryside and, where we can, we submit detailed comments and speak at Planning Committees to try to influence planning decisions.
