We will assist Members if they need help with planning problems.
The Association exists to pursue four main objectives: –
(a) To monitor rural planning and proposed development in the designated area and generally take any action considered desirable to protect and improve the rural environment (including the landscape, nature conservation, places of historical interest and rural amenities) whilst recognising the demands of agriculture, the need for appropriate new housing and renewable energy.
(b) To encourage those living in the area to take an interest in protecting and improving it as aforesaid.
(c) To liase with and support other organisations or associations concerned with protecting and improving the rural environment as aforesaid, whether in the designated area or more generally.
(d) Generally, to undertake all such other actions and activities as are considered consistent with the above objects.
