About us

The view over Sheffield city centre
A rainbow view over Sheffield city centre - the council wants your views on how the city should develop over the next 15 years

We are CPRE, the countryside charity. We work with communities, businesses and government to ensure that our countryside and green spaces can thrive.

Our aim is to promote the beauty, tranquility and diversity of the countryside in the Peak District and South Yorkshire for everyone to enjoy now and in the future.

We work to:

  • Connect people and countryside
  • Promote rural life
  • Empower communities
  • Grow our capacity
  • Tackle the climate emergency

We were established in 1924 and became a branch of CPRE in 1926.
