From Laura Jansen, CPRE Campaigns Team

1 December 2010

Good afternoon Buntingford Civic Society members

I just cannot believe it's December already. This year seems to have flown by!

stop the march of the pylonsNew pylons still threaten countryside
One of our campaigns since last December has been lobbying for any new pylons to avoid our most beautiful, protected and important landscapes (such as National Parks, Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty and Green Belts).

The Government has now brought out a second consultation on planning for new electricity lines. Our protected landscapes are still under threat so we need to keep up the pressure.

Hundreds of Campaigns Update readers kindly helped us throughout the year by responding to the first Government consultation, and lobbying the Energy Minister Chris Huhne. Some of the things you helped us call for have since been incorporated, so we know we are making progress, but we'd really appreciate your help again.

To show the Government how strongly people feel, we've prepared an online postcard for you to send direct to the consultation response team.

oppose mega dairyMega dairy campaign continues
You may have noticed all the press around the Nocton mega dairy. Getting on for a thousand people have now asked their MP to sign the Early Day Motion against the Nocton mega dairy.

Thank you very much if you were one of those - this is a wonderful level of support which really shows the Government the strength of feeling about this proposal.

And the number of MPs supporting the motion is going up week on week, which is very encouraging. The planning application is now out, and our local branch is working hard on a robust response.

And we're continuing to oppose the scheme as part of a coalition of national organisations - if it goes ahead, it could have serious consequences for smaller dairy farms and the countryside.
