As a result of previous successful workshops, CPRE Gloucestershire is co-hosting another Neighbourhood Plan Workshop on 6thJune  at Gambier Parry Rooms, Highnam Community Centre. The workshop will run with two sessions. The first session will focus on the questions many of us are asking about Neighbourhood Plans. These are: “Are ‘made’ Neighbourhood Plans making a difference: are they being used and influencing development management decisions and appeal outcomes?  Are they influencing local plan work?” Jeff Bishop who is leading the work from Place Studio will present initial findings of research.

This is a critically important role that brings together all aspects of the work that CPRE Gloucestershire does. It provides an excellent, part-time opportunity to work with an enthusiastic charity team, dedicated to the protection of the rural environment in Gloucestershire.  The post holder will need good communication skills and to be able to work under their own initiative.

CPRE Gloucestershire welcomes a new report looking at the future of our natural environment and needs of rural communities. This report,The countryside at a crossroads: Is the Natural Environment and Rural Communities Act 2006 still fit for purpose?from the House of Lords Select Committee, makes a series of recommendations to ensure that the objectives of this legislation are met, including the role of Government Departments and agencies.

Although CPRE welcomes the Government’s commitment to deliver a road scheme to resolve long-standing problems of congestion, road safety and air quality, the environment charity has serious concerns about present proposals.  The environmental sensitivity of the Crickley Hill area cannot be overstated.  As part of the designated Cotswolds AONB, this dramatic landscape has important nationally recognised wildlife habitats and ancient monuments. All these factors demand a road scheme designed to embrace environmental considerations at its very heart rather than as an add on.
