BP29 - Safeguarding Aggregate Resources

Sand, gravel and rocks used in construction are known as Aggregates. This background paper explains how the LDP ensures that aggregate reserves are safeguarded for future generations.

Construction projects can sterilise aggregate resources permanently, rendering them unavailable for future generations. Planning policies protect potentially valuable aggregate resources from development proposals which might sterilise them in the long-term. This process is known as safeguarding. Safeguarding a resource does not necessarily mean that planning permission will be granted for its working. Conversely, the absence of a safeguarding restriction does not necessarily mean that planning permission would not be granted for aggregate working.
