‘A powerful and memorable campaign’: CPRE wins award for response to planning proposals

CPRE has broken new ground and won an award for its campaign responding to the government’s proposed reform of the country’s planning system.
Our first award for campaigning and policy work in living memory was announced on Wednesday, November 24, and represents a striking triumph for the combined national and local approach of CPRE.
The annual PRCA Public Affairs Awards recognise the finest organisations and individuals operating in public affairs.
Clarifying why CPRE beat other big names such as Transport for London in our category, the judges said: “This was a powerful and memorable campaign, which received solid support and strong messaging and ultimately exposed the failings of the Planning White Paper – and certainly did get the government to think again.”
As ever, the efforts of people at every level of CPRE have been highlighted. We can’t do it without our supporters – if you’re one of them, thank you!
