Chairman’s Report 2018

We are much less active as a branch than I would like.  In the past this may have been related to a lack of financial resources, but since we received a large legacy that is no longer our major difficulty.  A much greater one relates to having the personnel to mount and manage campaigns.

Chairman’s Report 2017

Our major difficulty in this branch is with the dearth of volunteer activists.  The lack of personnel means that we do not have the human resources to campaign on as many issues as we would like.  


North Worcestershire Report 2017

This has been a relatively uneventful year.  At a strategic level, the new Bromsgrove and Redditch Plans have completed their long-winded Examination process and both councils formally adopted their Plans in January 2017.  


South Worcestershire Report 2017

The South Worcestershire Development Plan (SWDP) was adopted by the District Councils of Malvern Hills and Wychavon and Worcester City Council in February 2016. It claims to set out a clear Vision for the improvement, protection and sustainable growth of South Worcestershire up to 2030. It confesses that such ambitions face economic, environmental, social and infrastructure challenges.


The Aftermath of the Battle of Worcester

The first and last battles of the English Civil War were fought at Worcester.  The war started with a skirmish at Powick Bridge.  It ended with Cromwell’s defeat of a largely Scottish army at the Battle of Worcester on 3 September 1651.  


Affordability. Is it being measured correctly?

The views expressed in this article are the chairman’s own.  They are not necessarily those of CPRE or its Worcestershire Branch as a whole.  The author has a doctorate, but in economic history, not economics.


Newsletter and Annual Report 2014/15

I want to thank members for their confidence in appointing me as chairman of this branch at the AGM last summer. In accepting office, I made a speech about what I thought our priorities should be. These included recruiting a secretary, strengthening the Executive and re-launching a Wychavon group. - Dr Peter King


Chairman's Report (Jan 2014)

The omens for 2014 are not good for those of us who prefer to see England’s ‘green and pleasant land’ protected against further unnecessary and inappropriate development.
