DJA is delighted to announce that the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government (MHCLG) has re-awarded to it the contract to provide ‘Technical Secretariat’ services to the South West Aggregates Working Party (SWAWP) meaning that DJA will continue in its current role for the next 4 years.
In addition, DJA is thrilled to advise that it was also successful in its bid to provide ‘Technical Secretariat’ services to the East of England Aggregates Working Party (EEAWP) for the same period.
Having held the previous contract to provide secretariat services to the SWAWP for the past 5 years, DJA looks forward to continuing to work on behalf of its members. We are also looking forward to working on behalf of the members of the EEAWP and will endeavour to pick up from where the current secretary, Jerry Smith, leaves off in order to effect a smooth transition between secretariats.
The Aggregates Working Parties (AWPs) are advisory groups which provide advice to individual mineral planning authorities and to the National Aggregates Co-ordinating Group. There are a total of 9 AWPs in England covering London; the South East; the South West; the East of England; the West Midlands; the East Midlands; the North West; Yorkshire and Humber; and the North East.
Membership of each AWP comprises representatives from, amongst others, the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government (MHCLG), mineral planning authorities, the Marine Management Organisation, the Mineral Products Association and the British Aggregates Association.
