CPRE London

Our recent polling shows that millenials and Londoners are most likely to vote with the countryside and green spaces in mind. 

Three in four Londoners say that protecting green spaces, including the Green Belt, is important to them - more than in any other region.  Politicians of all parties would do well to head these findings. 

Following the publication of the Inspectors Report on the draft London Plan we have written formally to the Mayor of London asking him to stand firm on his commitment to protect the Green Belt and Metropolitan Open Land. 

The latest issue of our Green London eBulletin contains news of the Inspectors' Report on the draft London Plan along with other essential planning and environmental news from across the capital.    

We have written to the Mayor of London urging him to reject recommendations by the Panel of Inspectors which would seriously weaken protection of London's precious Green Belt and Metropolitan Open Land.

CPRE London today (Wednesday) is calling for an independent review of aviation with a view to implementing a phased closure programme of London City Airport to unlock the development potential of this seriously blighted part of London's former Docklands.  This comes as consultation on controversial and widely opposed proposals for expansion of the airport draws to a close on Friday 18 October.

Plans to build over 125 hectares of Green Belt are unecessary and unjustified, and will cause appalling congestion and pollution, say campaigners.

We have been encouraging discussion over the issue of public access to land in London.  At our AGM in May, 2019 we hosted a debate about whether we need an urban 'right to roam' with leading access campaigners.  The Mayor of London is working on a 'Public London Charter' to 'set out the rights and responsibilities for the users, owners and managers of public spaces irrespective of ownership' which is to be issued alongside the final London Plan in 2020.
