The main focus has been on GAPs for aggregate companies and guidance was issued in 2006. However, most have focussed on more practical initiatives for example producing a range of interpretative material and increasing access to geodiversity.
Lafarge Aggregates have produced a series of quarry geodiversity action plans, for example Croft Quarry.
Aggregate Industries have produced a series of quarry geodiversity action plans and educational material, for example at Millom Rock Park.
Hanson Aggregates have produced an overarching high level joint geodiversity and biodiversity action plan and aim to produce a geodiversity action plans for each quarry site.
