Hatfield Quarry Update

We are still monitoring the Quarry application and preparing for the planning meeting as and when it happens. We have arranged an expert in hydrology to assist us fighting the application and his report should be with the planners if not already then very shortly. The funds you residents kindly contributed to the EARA fund recently have greatly assisted in our payment for this service, so thank you all again for this. We have submitted two more objections from the EARA in relation to flooding of the area adjacent to the quarry site and the loss of greenbelt and how the pandemic has emphasised the absolute need for such open green spaces.

We apologise for the poor quality of the sound in the chamber, but this was down to technical difficulties by Hertfordshire CC who are in the process of upgrading their system. We have the only record of the meeting on tape.

With thanks to Dr Mike Howarth for making the only video of the meeting and capturing this event.
