    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 nonprofit.

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


    Stop Bengeo Quarry campaign represents 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 two year long campaign, the County Council’s Development Control Committee refused planning permission on 22nd March 2017, and another one on 26th April.

    However, the applicant appealed against County Council's decision and the Planning Inspectorate started a public inquiry into the case on 1st May 2018. The inquiry is now adjourned to allow Stop Bengeo Quarry bring in new evidence on health issues by the end of July 2018. However, funds are needed urgently. Every little helps!

    We will continue to oppose plans for this Hertford's urbal quarry.

    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!
