PEOPLE in Hanham and Longwell Green are being urged to join a campaign group to help fend off development on green space in the area.

They say they would like to increase their membership - which costs just £5 per household per year - in order to give them greater power to campaign and lobby against proposals which would see much of the green belt in the area obliterated.

Chairman Alan Jones said the pressure to build so many new homes made this a challenging time for the organisation.
