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 Chapmore End forest. 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.

This website is constantly being updated.
We hope to use this site to provide information about the proposed quarry and why we are campaigning against it. Please do get in contact with us with relevant information, news, photos, video links, and blogs.
