The aggregate working parties provide technical advice about the supply and demand for aggregates (including sand, gravel and crushed rock) to the mineral planning authorities for the area and to inform the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government.
The Council is a member of the South East England Aggregates Working Party (SEEAWP). Being a member helps to fulfil the Council's duty to co-operate with other mineral planning authorities in the south east to ensure an adequate supply of minerals for the area. The minutes of the SEEAWP meetings are available on request.
SEEAWP publishes annual South East Aggregates Monitoring Reports
