Sand, gravel and fill

What is it: 

There are 3 layers of data showing resources on the Scottish continental shelf as mapped, on behalf of the Crown Estate, by the British Geological Survey:

  1. Sand and gravel (aggregate) resources
  2. Prospective areas for Sand and gravel (aggregate) resources
  3. Fill areas where the mud content of the sand is <10% and so is not considered a Sand and gravel (aggregate) resource; but is of value because it is suitable for fill in, for example, land reclamation use.

From April 2017 the Crown Estate assets in Scotland have been managed by a new body, Crown Estate Scotland.
