Public Meeting on Proposed Quarry Friday 14th October 7pm At Andrews Church, Cappell Lane


Friday 14th October 7pm at St Andrews Church, Cappell Lane, Stanstead Abbotts

Say NO to the Quarry

Your Opinions can make a difference.

Nothing has yet been agreed and this is your opportunity to object to the plan and get it modified to exclude the massive, proposed quarry in our parish,

The consultation period now ends on 31 October 2022.

Stanstead Abbotts Parish Council is held a public meeting last night to tell villagers more about what is being proposed, what the Council’s concerns are (congestion, noise, pollution, and hazards to road users, 400 HGVS per day, silica dust blowing over the village). We were amazed at the turnout to the meeting last night, the church was packed full with standing room only. Our local MP Julie Marson is fully supportive of objecting to the quarry and is happy for people to email their personal objections to her at julie.marson.mp@parliament.uk.

Attached below are various documents that will make objecting to the quarry a lot simpler.
