5.10 Where aggregate materials are required for a particular major local construction project, production from established pits and quarries is sometimes supplemented by temporary borrow pits. Such workings may be for sand, gravel, chalk or clay. Production from borrow pits is normally limited to use for a specific local construction project and a direct access between the pit and the construction site is usually required. Borrow pits are most commonly used to serve road construction projects.
