5.61 The current extent of use of secondary or substitute aggregate materials is not fully known and it is not yet possible accurately to forecast future availability of and demand for these materials. Much will depend upon what, if any, measures the Government takes to encourage and promote their use. The April 1994 version of MPG6 sets targets for the use of secondary and recycled material in England of 40 million tonnes a year by 2001 and 55 million tonnes a year by 2006. It envisages a total of 140 million tonnes of secondary and recycled material being used in the South East Region over the period 1992-2006, being about 26 per cent of the total for England. Assuming that about 8 per cent of the aggregates consumed in the South East Region are used in Hampshire, the equivalent target figures for the use of secondary and recycled material in Hampshire are about 0.8 million tonnes a year by 2001 and about 1.1 million tonnes a year by 2006. The Councils believe that there is, in particular, potential for a significant increase in the production and use of aggregates from construction and demolition waste in Hampshire. Therefore, the establishment of waste crushing and recycling plants for the production of aggregate materials will be supported at suitable locations.
