Local Aggregates Assessment in Dorset
The Mineral Planning Authority (Dorset County Council, together with and on behalf of Bournemouth Borough Council and Borough of Poole) is required to prepare a Local Aggregates Assessment (LAA).
The LAA describes and assesses the current situation, with a particular focus on supply of land-won sand and gravel. The LAA is updated annually and covers:
- the various options for aggregate supply in Dorset
- future aggregates supply, demand, opportunities and constraints
- setting the annual supply figure to determine future production
The five most recent LAA reports are available and can be downloaded:
