About the CPRE Cheshire Green Buildings Visiting Scheme
CPRE fights for a better future for Englandís unique, essential and precious countryside. From giving parish councils expert advice on planning issues to influencing national and European policies, we work to protect and enhance the countryside. We believe a beautiful, thriving countryside is important for everyone, no matter where they live. We donít own land or represent any special interests. Our members are united in their love for Englandís landscapes and rural communities, and stand up for the countryside, so it can continue to sustain, enchant and inspire future generations.
In 2009, CPRE produced its 2026 vision - an inspirational document which guides the charity's campaigning activities. The document can be downloaded via this link: http://www.cpre.org.uk/resources/cpre/about-cpre/item/download/517
The document states 'in 2026, Rural buildings are more energy-efficient and small-scale renewables are common'. In light of this aim, CPRE Cheshire has organised a Green Buildings Visiting Weekend to enable householders to learn more about green technologies by talking with homeowners who have already implemented them. All visits are free but we would be grateful for a donation of £2 per person, per visit to offset some of the costs which have been incurred putting the scheme together.
