Our urban and rural environments face many threats as well as offering new opportunities for enhancement. We care about our environment and work to ensure that any development is acceptable and sympathetic to its surroundings. Find out more about us.
We make a difference
As individuals we often feel powerless to influence decisions about planning matters that affect our quality of our lives. We work with other bodies at local and national level on major issues. To find out more, visit our caseload page.
