Following the business agenda, Nick Thompson (Lancashire Branch Chair) and Jackie Copley (Planning Manager for CPRE Lancashire) gave an interesting presentation focusing on devolution and CPRE’s new Urban Network.

The Urban Network is a new initiative which aims to identify issues and campaigns for Branches who have a significant urban population in cities and large towns, especially in light of devolution in city regions. Manchester and Liverpool, although mainly within Lancashire in CPRE Branch terms, both border Cheshire.

The Urban Network will consider the natural environment in and around towns and cities, and will focus on engaging with the new decision making bodies in terms of spatial planning and strategic decision making and is as such particularly relevant to Cheshire. Members enjoyed a buffet of cakes and sandwiches in the evening sunshine to conclude the evening.
