CPRE the countryside charity

Don’t let the government deregulate planning

17,907 people have taken action so far. Help us reach 25,000.

The government has devised some new plans that could pose a huge risk to the countryside and the communities living and working within it. 

Ministers want to take decision-making powers away from communities and local councils, handing it over to housing developers and central powers in Westminster.   

Under these new proposals, our ability to shape the future of where we live – a right communities have had for 70 years – could be lost with the stroke of a pen.  

We must resist this, but we don’t have long.  


We have to stand firmly against these proposals before they are taken any further. Sign our petition to call on government to drop them and invest in a planning system that: 

  • Puts people and communities first 
  • Provides access to countryside for all 
  • Delivers affordable homes for those in need 
  • Enables the building of zero-carbon homes as soon as possible 
  • Empowers councils and gives local people a voice 

We need to shift the scales in favour of communities, not developers, and if enough of us stand together, we can make a real difference. With just a few clicks, you can be part of that. 

To the Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government, Robert Jenrick

Drop the government’s plans to deregulate planning – give communities the power to shape their future.  


Thank you.
