Very large coastal quarries (e.g. Glensanda, Scotland), capable of producing five million tonnes per annum or more, could be located in remote parts of the UK, with direct access to deep water ports from where aggregates could be delivered, cost-effectively by bulk ships to wharves close to major markets such as London and the South by: tonnes per annum contributing to the South-East’s needs from ‘superquarries’ in Scotland and from underground mining in Kent alone. This compares to the Quarry Products Association’s current estimate of South-East consumption of around 45million tonnes per annum, of which just under half is still supplied from land-won and marine sand and gravel.

Figure 4Table of projected annual aggregate supply scenario (in million tonnes) against DoE forecast demand for South East England, noting potential shortfall of aggregate supply. Meeting the Opportunity at Torr Works and Glensanda Ton works was developed to meet the real shortfall in the demand/supply scenario in South East England. The maintenance of supply to this and other resource-poor regions in England requires considerable market intervention from government through the managed aggregate supply system (MASS) set up as a result of the Verney Inquiry in the s (Thomas, ). MASS uses econometric forecasting as a basis for apportionment of aggregate production at Cited by: The pattern of supply of sand and gravel for construction purposes in South East Wales is unique in the UK because of its current and historic dependence on marine dredged resources. There is no active land based extraction of sand and gravel in South East Wales although fine material from crushed rock quarries satisfies part of the demand. The South East team convened the nine coastal HEIs in September to discuss what “community knowledge exchange with South East coastal communities” might look like. The group started with a concept and have, through debate and revision, consultation with staff and local communities, built an exciting but realistic project.

MPG6 deals only with "Aggregate Provision" and the apportionment of demand and supply to the various English Regions. NPPG4 does not deal with that level of detail. The Reporter also states that NPPG4 makes provision for Scottish superquarries "which would contribute to the reduction in the amount of traditional land won aggregates used in.

It became apparent in the ’s that Britain would experience a dramatic shortfall in aggregate supply in the coming decades; hence the Verney Committee was commissioned to draw up a report on the issue. The report had predicted that the shortfall would occur for two reasons; firstly, due to.
