Protect our public rights of way and views from quarrying on Bengeo Field (Land at Ware Park)
Petition has closed and a response from the council has been published.
The footpath from Bengeo to Chapmore End has now been recognised as a Community Resource by East Hertfordshire District Council. This path is used by hundreds of people weekly throughout the year both to access the countryside and as a walking route to Champore End. Since much of the surrounding land on Sacombe Road has already been quarried this is the one remaining example of agricultural land in North Hertford. Any quarrying would have a devastating impact on people’s use of this invaluable amenity and their enjoyment of the countryside. It would be devastating to the character of our area and the field would be in effect unusable until restoration is completed perhaps 15 to 20 years from now.
Access to agricultural land and the countryside on the edge of our community is what has given Bengeo its distinctive character and we strongly object to the proposed quarrying which is highly unsuitable for our area. Destruction of this landscape on Hertford's doorstep will have a deeply negative impact on the health and well-being of local residents and ruin the enjoyment of this precious landscape for everyone.
