A COUNCILLOR has criticised a company’s application to continue importing, processing and exporting concrete from a village quarry, calling it “a blight on everyone who lives there”.
The request has been put forward to Herts County Council by the current owners of Codicote Quarry, Anstey Quarries ltd, on the basis that their operations there have been running accordingly for at least 10 years.
Cllr Tom Brindley, North Herts District Council portfolio holder for planning and enterprise, disputed this. He said: “The fact is that this is simply not true. They have been running their operation here for some time but this proposal would give them unprecedented freedom to do what they want.
“They have already caused disruption to the village and there have been incidents of damage due to their lorries constantly coming in and out. Many residents are coming forward with evidence as to why this plan should not be allowed to continue.
“I encourage anyone from Codicote who is in a position to support us and defend our village against these changes to come forward.”
