Surrey Minerals Plan Primary Aggregates Development Plan Document
The Surrey Minerals Plan Primary Aggregates Development Plan Document (DPD) forms part of the Surrey Minerals Plan and identifies the preferred areas for future primary aggregate extraction for the period 2009-2026.
Primary aggregates found in Surrey are sharp sand and gravel and soft sand. Sharp sand and gravel are used principally for producing concrete (concreting aggregates). Soft sand is used mainly to produce mortar and asphalt for the building and construction industry.
The policies and preferred areas set out in the DPD will be used to inform the determination of individual planning applications. The Surrey Minerals Plan Minerals Site Restoration Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) sets out Surrey County Council’s vision of how mineral workings in Surrey should be restored during the period to 2026.
