About the CLA

The CLA is the membership organisation for owners of land, property and businesses in rural England and Wales.

We speak for everyone who believes in a living and working countryside.

Through the experience and expertise of members and staff, we promote our members’ interests and influence decision-makers to ensure the positive development of the rural economy.

CLA professionals lobby continuously at EU, national and regional level in the interests of our members ensuring a visible presence and influence in the media and with Government.

We achieve our goals by being professional, relevant and forward looking, as we have been since 1907, when we began.
