CAMPAIGNERS are seeking more active support for their battle to protect open space around Hanham.

The Hanham Greenbelt Conservation Society is looking for additional committee members to help it fight development plans that could threaten the Hanham Hills.

In its latest newsletter, it says it is busier than it has been for years. It is preparing for battle over plans to relocate the cricket club in Abbots Road and build hundreds of houses.

Mike Camm, from the group, said in the newsletter that if the proposed development went ahead it would be a disaster.

“This society has fought many battles with some notable results; we cannot win all the time but with your help and support we can at least try and protect our community from those who only see the bottom line and not the bigger picture.” he said.

Representatives attended the February meeting of Hanham Abbots Parish Council, which agreed to oppose the development in the Green Belt. It is hoped a public meeting with the developer, who is acting on behalf of a private landowner, can be arranged. 

The conservation society meetings re held on the first Wednesday of tbhe month at Christchurch Hall committee room, starting at 7.45pm. You can find out more on the society website www.hanhamgreenbelt.co.uk
