About this site

Hi, this website will publicise various environmental issues and events, mainly in south-east Wales, and particularly in support of Campaign for the Protection of Rural Wales. My main thing is to help to protect our beautiful Welsh countryside from unnecessary development, and maintain sustainable rural life. OK, some rural development is unavoidable and there are real problems for young people finding somewhere to live, but in most cases the pressure is from speculators looking for a good return, or local authorities with expansionist ambitions (either Councillors or officers, or both). What really annoys me is that proper consultation on development is usually minimal or non-existent, and the crucial stage of land being newly zoned for development in Local Development Plans is particularly poorly publicised.
