CAMpRA has prepared many documents to assist MPs, councillors, landowners and any body who may wish to consider setting up an Aire.

Most important are our Strategy Document (updated February 21) and our Fire Safety Report – which was commissioned from a professional Fire Safety Expert – and the results of the CAMpRA Survey which was carried out in September 2020 and which received almost 9000 responses.
