Mark Prisk continues to back the Stop Bengeo Quarry (SBQ) campaign. He has met with members of the SBQ several times concerning plans for a gravel pit to be extracted. He has written to the Waste Planning Authority to object to both the appeal by the applicant on the rejected application and against their second application.
