What is CoVoP?

The Community Voice on Planning

“To promote sustainable development for the benefit of the public by:

  1. The preservation, conservation and protection of the nation’s green environment and the prudent use of resources.
  2. Enabling local communities to preserve, conserve and protect their own local green environments, whether green fields, green spaces or green belts.
  3. The promotion of sustainable means of achieving economic growth and regeneration.
  4. The advancement of the education of the public in subjects relating to sustainable development and the protection of the environment, by promoting study and research, including the dissemination of findings to the public at large.”


As there are many groups around the country fighting  developments on greenfield or green spaces and government does not seem to be listening, a number of groups have decided to get together in the hope that a larger voice will enable us to influence government policies on behalf of all of those communities.

We recognise that many groups are fighting developments on inappropriate sites or without the necessary infrastructure. As local plans are being delayed by the red tape included in government policies, developers are being given a window of opportunity to build anywhere. We believe that local communities do not have a voice to challenge this and that greenfield and green spaces are being lost forever without thought for the long term consequences.

If your group would like to participate as part of this alliance then simply contact us. Please provide details of your location, website, facebook, twitter (or other social media) together with a contact name and phone number and a brief statement about your campaign. We will add you to our database and keep you informed of our activities. Please also let us know if you do not want your group included on our website.

We will not use your contact information for any other purpose than to notify you of CoVoP activity.
