Silica sand Mineral Planning Factsheet updated

Silica sand

BGS publishes revised factsheet to reflect changes in planning, production and supply

THE British Geological Survey (BGS) publishes a series of Mineral Planning Factsheets covering economically important minerals that are extracted in Britain.

The factsheets are primarily intended to inform the land-use planning process but are also of much wider interest.

Individual factsheets are periodically updated to provide an up-to-date overview of the supply of a specific mineral, with the latest revision being for silica sand.

The updated silica sand factsheet reflects changes in the structure of the industry, the latest amendments in a wide range of silica sand-related planning issues, plus updated statistics on all aspects of silica sand supply.

A copy of the updated factsheet can be downloaded below.
