CLA East provides services and rural representation for members in the counties of Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire, Essex, Hertfordshire, Middlesex, Norfolk, Suffolk, Northamptonshire, Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire.

Serving members in the East: CLA East has thousands of farming, landowning and rural business members. They range from countryside enthusiasts with an acre or less to some of Britain's best-known farmers and biggest estates, plus a hugely diverse range of rural businesses. These members are supported by the regional team of staff and served by county and regional committees.

Campaigning: We campaign regionally on behalf of our members and the whole rural economy. We lobby national and local Government, respond to consultations and have representation in a range of organisations to safeguard our members' interests.

Help and advice: Our knowledge of planning, public access and environmental issues enables us to advise members on diversification and a wide range of other issues. We can also call upon our tax and legal experts at headquarters to advise on more complex matters. For help and advice on any matter, large or small, contact the team at the regional office. If we are unable to deal with the query we have a database of other experts with whom we can put you in touch.

We arrange a number of seminars, visits and social events for the benefit of our members. These are advertised in our Enews and on the regional pages of the CLA's national Land & Business magazine.

There has never been a more important time to benefit from being a Member of the CLA: if you are not already part of our active and growing organisation contact the regional office on 01638 590429 or email east@cla.org.uk
