Re: Bengeo Gravel Extraction

no. It's west of the 414 and south of the b195. also ex quarried land, legally i guess. where the tip is essentially. Ah, Birchall Garden Suburb - 2550 homes south east of WGC (link: http://www.tarmac.com/birchall-garden-suburb). Not exactly between Hertford and WGC to my mind, but that's probably ...

Re: Bengeo Gravel Extraction

isn't the development being planned in between welwyn and hertford green belt? And that one is huge. I'm not sure that green belt counts for much any more. Sure there'll be protests, but at the end of the day the houses are needed somewhere. I'm not sure which "huge" development between Welwyn and ...

Re: Bengeo Gravel Extraction

I think Smudger means that n most cases, when they've extracted all the aggregates they can from a quarry, it gets landscaped and returned to nature in the form of parkland/wetlands etc. Because people campaigned to stop it, the obvious alternative to a quarry will be a nice new housing estate I'm ...

Well done to the stop Bengeo Quarry campaigners.
They've stopped a quarry that would have been a public park in 20 years time.
Now there will be houses forever.

Didn't put that in the leaflets did they
You're going to have to explain that one to me

Re: Bircherley Green

Have we any further information on what is happening to Bircherly Green? Last rumour I heard was that there is now no longer going to be an hotel, but rumour does not say what will be in it’s place. Also I have wondered why they closed the multi story car park so promptly when I think it is still t...

Re: County Council relocation

Interesting to hear HCC propose moving 1,000 staff to St Albans and, despite it being a news item on this site yesterday, there is still no public announcement on the new site, cost, or justification. I think it was less that 25yrs ago that it saw fit to close and sell sites and consolidate in Hert...
