The CLA (Countryside Landowners Association) is a not for profit membership organisation for owners of land, property and businesses in rural England and Wales. The CLA was set up to protect and encourage the positive development of a living and working countryside.
The Association offers its members unlimited independent and impartial information on a wide range of subjects. In addition, CLA professionals lobby continuously at EU, National and Regional level in the interests of members, to ensure a visible presence and influence in the development of the rural economy.
With six regional teams across England and Wales, the CLA offers detailed local knowledge and in-depth understanding of a variety of issues affecting rural areas.
HPW supports the aims of the CLA and has recently joined the Association, to add their experience and expertise in rural development to the CLA arsenal.
