The Chief Executive Officer of CPRE – Roger Mortlock – joined CPRE from the Gloucestershire Wildlife Trust (GWT) where he had been CEO for the past nine years. He led the GWT through a period of significant change, increasing the ambition of their programmes and doubling income. On the national stage, Roger is an experienced campaigner. At GWT he developed and launched the UK’s first green infrastructure benchmark and led on several national agricultural policy projects for the Wildlife Trusts. Prior to the GWT, Roger was Deputy Director of the Soil Association and, before that, Director of Communications with the Royal Shakespeare Company.

CPRE’s national lead for Planning Policy – Jackie Copley MRTPI – is a planner with over 30 years’ experience.   Over the last decade she has worked for CPRE Lancashire with volunteers to deliver campaigning successes, including stopping harmful impacts arising from fracking, and large housing developments proposed on green fields.  During the past year in her current role she has responded to numerous government consultations to speed up Nationally Significant Infrastructure Projects, change the National Planning Policy Framework on local plan making, and on additional Permitted Development Rights.  Jackie is to take on a new challenge as CPRE’s Campaign Lead, with the intent of ensuring the new government is effectively persuaded by CPRE to save land in our countryside for the benefit of all in the future.  At our AGM she hopes to share key insights into the next government’s early days and what it means for planning.  She looks forward to meeting colleagues at CPRE Wiltshire to better understand the countryside issues of the day with a particular focus on solar farms.
