A3. Future Role of the RAWPs

Assessment of Aggregates Demand and Supply

  • To assess the environmental capacity of MPA areas to meet the demand for aggregates;
  • To assess the reserves of primary aggregates in active and dormant sites and the likelihood of dormant sites being reactivated;
  • To assess the use of secondary and recycled aggregates and consider ways to improve data collection and to increase their use to replace primary resources;
  • To assess the provision/capacity within each unitary authority area to recycle construction and demolition waste, identifying scope to improve the recycling and reuse of aggregates by examining the extent of landfill disposal (and use on exempt sites) and locations of recycling facilities;
  • To assess the arisings of construction and demolition waste, including road planings and their reuse and recovery as aggregates.
