Who we are

We are CPRE Sussex, the countryside charity. We want a thriving beautiful countryside for everyone.


We are the local CPRE branch in Sussex working for a countryside that’s rich in nature, accessible to everyone and responding to the climate emergency. We want sustainable, vibrant communities in the Sussex countryside. We believe that good land-use planning is the unsung hero of environmental protection. It can help slow the growth in road traffic, encourage urban regeneration, curb urban sprawl, protect the beauty and tranquillity of the countryside and safeguard wildlife habitats.

We stand up for the Sussex countryside so that it can enrich lives and benefit people’s health and well-being, including those previously unfamiliar with the countryside.

CPRE Sussex has worked for nearly half a century to support and promote our countryside, and we’ll be doing this for generations to come. That’s why we are ‘the countryside charity’.
