Regional Aggregate Working Parties (RAWPs) were established in England and Wales in the early 1970s. They aimed to manage the need for and supply of aggregates (gravel, sand etc) in the construction industry. The Working Parties also deals with concerns about the environmental impact of extracting aggregates.

After devolution, the Welsh Assembly Government has developed separate policies from England for minerals planning and supply of aggregates.

In the light of these policy changes, the Assembly Government decided to evaluate the role and purpose of the RAWPs in Wales.

This executive summary presents the key findings of that evaluation.
