I must be one of the least well informed people on this planet. I have learned, four days after the event, that the plans for sand quarries at Bromham and Rowde have been killed. But are they well and truly dead?
ITV television has filmed in Bromham, prompted by my book “I Object”. The book is my formal objection to the quarry proposals. The item is scheduled to be aired on Monday, 1 November, at 6 p.m. on ITV The West Country Tonight.
When the Bromham quarry proposals became first known to residents less than two months ago, I started a photography project documenting “the destruction of a village”. I have now published some of this work in my book “I Object”.
When I mentioned David Cameron’s concept of “wealth creators” in a recent blog post about the Bromham quarry proposals, I knew that something felt wrong but I could not put my finger on it. Now I know.
