David Cameron is to give a speech on the future of the UK countryside.

It comes as issues surrounding housing in these regions continue to roll on, particularly in light of recent happenings in the housing market.

"The countryside faces an uncertain future. Climate change, population growth, housing expansion, and demands for new transport and energy infrastructure, as well as acute pressure on farming and rural communities, all add up to a major agenda for change," said Shaun Spiers, chief executive of the Campaign to Protect Rural England (CPRE).

The UK currently has a housing shortage and many in the countryside are concerned that plans to build more homes may have a significant impact on their communities.

"Who and what is the countryside for? How can we develop sustainable rural communities? These are the some of the questions we are considering following the launch of our debate on the future of the countryside last year," added Mr Spiers.

Mr Cameron will give his speech to the CPRE on May 12th.
