The Cambridge News says:

Prime countryside in Cambridgeshire is at huge risk of being developed under proposed reforms to national planning policy, it is feared.

A report released by the Campaign to Protect Rural England (CPRE) shows that 55 per cent of England's countryside could be at increased risk from being built on.

You have to hand it to the CPRE, they know how to use weasel words. So 55 per cent of England's countryside could be at increased risk from being built on. That is two qualifications in just one sentence.

The CPRE is just a typical special interest pressure group which wants, in this case, to continually force urban areas to throw money at rural areas. If the rural elite want to keep development out, and in particular people out, of rural areas, then they should live with the consequences in terms of higher costs and reduced services.
