A group battling the building of 3,000 homes on the edge of Aylesbury is looking for volunteers to help fight its corner.

The Hampden Fields Action Group, which opposes 3,000 proposed homes between Bedgrove and Weston Turville, needs speakers to attend an appeal hearing.

Someone who commutes daily along Tring Road past where Hampden Fields would be is needed to describe the current traffic situation.

The group is also after someone who walks regularly on footpaths which cross the proposed site.

Volunteers would need to attend the appeal hearing later this year but would not have to be planning experts.

The Hampden Fields plan has been rejected by the district council, but the consortium behind the project had already successfully applied for the Planning Inspectorate to make the final decision.

Anyone wishing to volunteer should contact the group via its website by Tuesday (May 21).
