What is crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


Stop Bengeo Quarry campaign represents a group of concerned residents who oppose plans for gravel extraction in Bengeo, north of Hertford.

In March 2016, Hertfordshire County Council received a planning application to open a quarry in the beautiful fields between Sacombe Road, Wadesmill Road (B158), and St. John’s Wood. The site is south of the now defunct Rickney’s Quarry, which was mothballed in the 1990s.

The proposal was for the extraction of gravel over a fifteen year period (later reduced to ten years).

Following a year long campaign, the County Council’s Development Control Committee refused planning permission on 22nd March 2017.

However, the applicant has now registered an appeal with the Planning Inspectorate to overturn the County Council’s decision – a process that could take up to a year. In addition, they have also submitted a new revised planning application to the County Council.

We will continue to oppose plans for gravel and sand extraction in just outside Hertford – both the appeal made to The Planning Inspectorate and the revised planning application made to the County Council. These are two separate processes which we will vigorously fight on both fronts.

We're raising money to support Stop Bengeo Quarry campaign and all money will be used to fund expert and legal advice and representation in continuing to oppose gravel extraction. All funds will go to the Stop Bengeo Quarry bank account and our first year of accounts were independently audited. Direct donation to Stop Bengeo Quarry bank account are also welcome. If you have any questions please ask. And THANK YOU FOR ALL THE DONATIONS RECEIVED ALREADY!
