Member of Parliament for North East Herts, Oliver Heald, has written to the Planning Inspectorate and Hertfordshire County Council fully supporting the objections of Hertfordshire County Councillors Andrew Stephenson and Ken Crofton and District Councillor Michael McMullen to plans for a quarry north of Bengeo.

We welcome Sir Oliver’s support as he joins our own local MP Mark Prisk in objecting to the plans, along with local councillors, civic groups and residents’ associations.
