Rural communities are displaced along the urban fringe by the expansion of urban areas. The paper is about resistance and opposition which local residents may raise in efforts to protect their community from the disruption of change. The example of Columbia Valley, a small rural agricultural area is utilized. The resistance plays a key role in preventing the proposals from proceeding. It is founded upon residents' desire to protect the lifestyles and livelihoods existing within their local community
