"Dorset CPRE works to promote, enhance and protect the Dorset countryside, for the benefit of all. We are driven by the work of passionate local volunteers and are part of a wider national Network of CPRE groups in every county who campaign for a beautiful and thriving countryside for everyone to value and enjoy.
We want to see a beautiful and biodiverse countryside, with thriving communities, where the needs of local people are met and their voices are heard in decision-making, for example on planning.
We therefore ask you to support policies which support the countryside locally in the following areas:

We would welcome the opportunity to meet with you after the election to discuss these issues, and how Dorset CPRE can support you to deliver policies that meet the needs of local communities, while enhancing the countryside for current and future generations to enjoy."
