You can help save the countryside from as little as £3 per month

The most effective way for you to help protect the countryside is to become a member of CPRE. We’re delighted that you want to join us. We all need the countryside – whether it’s for fresh air, delicious local produce, beautiful landscapes, or vibrant towns and villages – the countryside is invaluable. By joining CPRE, you are helping to ensure that a beautiful living countryside thrives for generations to come.

CPRE membership is from £3 per month, but giving at a higher level will help us do more to protect the countryside. CPRE members may add their partner and other family members to their membership – those who do tend to give from £5 per month.

As a CPRE member you’ll receive:

  • Countryside Voice magazine, three times a year*
  • Half-price entry to over 200 houses and gardens across England
  • Fieldwork, our newsletter to help you to campaign
  • Membership of your local County Branch
  • Access to our Planning Hotline for advice from CPRE

*Please note we are unable to send our magazine, Countryside Voice, to members who pay less than £3 per month. We understand that each person’s circumstances are different, and we very much welcome you joining us at whatever level you can afford. However we hope you understand that we won’t be able to provide our magazine.

For all memberships, we encourage you to pay by monthly, quarterly or annual Direct Debit. Please freephone 0800 163680 to join up by Direct Debit today.

  • £120 per year (equivalent to £10 per month)
  • £300 per year (equivalent to £25 per month)
  • £600 per year (equivalent to £50 per month)

         Leave a legacy

If you share our beliefs about protecting our precious heritage of a beautiful countryside, please consider leaving a gift to CPRE in your will.

Your legacy, no matter what the amount, will help us ensure that developments are sensitive to the countryside, and that housing sprawl is kept in check. With your help, there will be a green, tranquil and beautiful England for tomorrow’s children to enjoy.

The English countryside is an exceptional creation – immensely old, full of surprises and nearly always pleasing to look at. For me, the countryside represents so much of what makes life worth living but how much of it will be left for future generations to enjoy? Bill Bryson

With the advice of a solicitor, writing a will or changing it in order to include a gift to CPRE is very simple.
