Mark Prisk backs the Stop Bengeo Quarry (SBQ) campaign. He met with members of the SBQ, on the 22nd of April concerning plans for a gravel pit to be extracted. A number of constituents have contacted Mr Prisk stating their strong objection to the proposal, arguing that it would have significant adverse effects on the local residents and the local environment, including Bengeo Primary School.
Mark Prisk has now written to both Hertfordshire County Council and the Environment Agency to oppose this.
The County Council receives and analyses applications before they go to Committee and then facilitates the decision process.
The local Country Councillor, Andrew Stevenson, has received a number of e-mails on this matter. He is happy to be contacted if constituents of his wish to share their views at: Andrew.Stevenson@hertfordshire.gov.uk
