The Berkshire Branch AGM was held on Wednesday 8th August 2018 at 7pm in the Long Gallery, Englefield House, Englefield, Reading.  Richard Knox-Johnston, Chairman of London Green Belt Council gave the keynote speech 'How Safe is the Berkshire Countryside?'

Last year our speaker was the new CPRE President, Emma Bridgewater.

The CPRE Berkshire Branch AGM 2018 was held at The Long Gallery, Englefield House, Theale, by kind permission of Richard Benyon MP and was attended by 50 members, guests and representatives from Parish Councils, and Carol Jackson-Dorg, Leader of West Berkshire Council, Graham Barker, the High Sheriff of Berkshire and Dr. Christina Hill Williams, Deputy Lord Lieutenant of Berkshire.  The new Chairman elected at the AGM is John Hudson of Bray, Maidenhead.

The speaker, Richard Knox-Johnston, gave an interesting talk with focus on the 'State of the Green Belt' which remains under severe pressure despite government committments to its protection- a new report from the Campaign to Protect Rural England (CPRE) shows that 460,000 houses are being planned for land that will be released from the Green Belt while the percentage of 'affordable' homes built continues to fall.
