We are a group of concerned residents who oppose plans for gravel extraction in Bengeo.
The County Council have received a proposal to open a quarry in the beautiful fields between Sacombe Road, Wadesmill Road (B158), and St.John’s Wood. The site is an extension of the now defunct Rickney’s Quarry, which was abandoned in the 1990s.
Only adjacent houses received the letters and we are trying to reach as many as possible.
We are also trying to extend the deadline for objections. PLEASE SHARE, OBJECT, SPREAD THE WORD.

“On behalf of Bengeo School, I would like to reiterate our opposition to the proposed excavation of sand and gravel at the proposed Bengeo quarry. The possible dangers to health from particles of silicates in the air could be particularly threatening to children who have asthma. The suggestion from the Public Health Service to surround the school with dust monitors is neither practical nor manageable. The role of a school is to educate children, not to monitor dust levels. We continue to support the Stop the Bengeo Quarry campaign and would like to thank all of those involved for their commitment and determination to support the best interests of individuals and families who live in Bengeo.”
Mrs Julie Starkiss, Headteacher of Bengeo Primary School
