The threat to the Green Belt is widespread so other groups have been formed to protect their local Green Belt. If you have an interest in the Green Belt or know of someone who lives outside the Cobham area, please visit these other groups as working together we can help protect OUR Green Belt. If you know of other groups which should be represented here, please let us know through our contact page.
