Externalities from extraction of aggregates; regulation by tax or land-use controls


, : Externalities from extraction of aggregates; regulation by tax or land-use controls. Resources Policy 25(2): 77-86

Quarries create externalities such as noise, dust, and visual disamenity in the production of minerals. Externalities can be regulated by taxes, or land-use controls specifying externality levels not to be exceeded. This article shows how stated preference methods can be used to estimate the value to local residents of avoiding different externality levels from a quarry. From this a tax value per tonne is derived, and this tax level compared to that proposed by the UK Government. The efficacy of land-use controls is investigated, and compared in efficiency and equity terms with tax based regulation.
