UK aggregates industry continues its struggle to replenish reserves

The UK aggregates industry continues to be unable to replenish its output with new reserves according to a report from BDS Marketing Research Ltd. This, the report states, is despite markets continuing to remain at historically low levels during 2011. BDS estimates that last year, sand and gravel companies obtained consents which only replaced 70 per cent of production during the year.
