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. 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. This report is the collation of the data for primary aggregates for 2005. In addition to presenting information on regional and national sales, consumption, and permitted reserves of primary aggregates, the AM2005 report also presents, for the first time, data on the movement and consumption of primary aggregates by sub-region. Information is also presented on the quantity of aggregate minerals granted and refused planning permissions between 2002 and 2005 by site type and environmental designation.
