By J.M. Mankelow, M.A. Sen, C.E. Wrighton and N. Idoine

Abstract

Aggregate Minerals (AM) surveys, based at four-yearly intervals since 1973, provide an in-depth and up-to-date understanding of regional and national sales, inter-regional flows, transportation, consumption and permitted reserves of primary aggregates. More recently, complementary surveys have provided information on the arisings and use of alternatives to primary aggregates such as selected mineral wastes, construction, demolition and extraction wastes, and industrial by-products. All these surveys are used to inform Government on the production, movement and consumption of aggregates in order to monitor and revise, as necessary, the Aggregate Guidelines, which support Minerals Policy Statement 1: Planning and Minerals. The data are made publicly available.\ud The report is the collation of the data for primary aggregates in England and Wales from the survey undertaken for 2009. The report also presents data on the movement and consumption of primary aggregates, by local planning authority
