Rural campaigners get behind the AJ campaign

The Countryside Alliance has come out in support of the AJ's campaign to save the PPG 7 country house clause.

The rural lobbying organisation's new chief executive, Simon Hart, said he was 'happy to sign up'because new country houses often act as triggers for regeneration.

The Countryside Alliance exists as a tool to promote the interests of traditional countryside communities. Its decision to back the AJ's campaign illustrates the widespread support for the country house tradition among Britain's rural population.

The ODPM has said that the publication of the finalised PPS 7 document was unlikely to be 'this side of Easter'.
