Marine Aggregate Dredging in the UK: A Review
In the 20th century, a marine industry evolved to dredge sand and gravel from the seabed around the United Kingdom, in order to provide an alternative source of aggregates for the construction industry. Marine sand and gravel was also dredged for beach replenishment schemes around the UK coastline. During the latter part of the century, there was an increased focus on coastal and marine issues generally, by both the public and regulatory authorities. In the context of coastal and marine resource management, this paper reviews the recent developments that have taken place within the marine aggregate dredging industry and discusses the evolution of the institutional frameworks within which the industry operates.
