Strategic Planning

County Planning: facts and figures

Information relating to the monitoring of plan policies is collected regularly for publication in the monitoring report. This information not only allows the Hampshire Authorities to monitor trends in the demand for minerals and the need for waste facilities but also acts as an evidence base to support any changes in policy development and implementation.

A list of sites where planning permission has been granted for minerals and waste uses is updated regularly and available below (see the 'Sites List' tab).

The demand and supply of aggregates is also collected regularly on behalf of the South East England Aggregates Working Party (SEEAWP) for the South East Aggregates Monitoring Report and contributes to the Local Aggregate Assessment (LAA) that is published annually (both of these are also available on the tabs below).

Information about marine aggregate reserves is available from The Crown Estate.


Monitoring plays an important part in our work as it allows the Planning Authorities to plan, monitor and manage the mineral and waste resources in Hampshire. The information is collated, analysed and published in a Monitoring Report.
Key information that is recorded and published includes:

  • Primary aggregates reserves (Sharp Sand and Gravel, Soft Sand)
  • Aggregates recycled, marine dredged, quarried and imported by rail
  • Waste diverted from landfill via recycling, composting, recovery
  • Waste capacity (permitted and installed)
  • Renewable energy (from waste products)

  • Aggregates in Hampshire;

  • Total Aggregate Supply;

  • Future Aggregate Supply, Demand, Opportunities and Constraints;

  • Hampshire’s Local Approach; and

  • Conclusions and review of the Local Aggregate Assessment.

South East England Aggregates Monitoring Report

The Aggregates Monitoring (AM) Report for the South East has been prepared from returns made by quarry, wharf and rail depot operators to Mineral Planning Authorities (MPAs) or the Area Working Party (AWP) Secretary.

The report also includes information on recycling and alternative materials data together with a record of how applications have been determined, withdrawn or remain undetermined at the end of each calendar year. Where possible, trend comparisons are made with previous AM reports.
