Who we are

The BAA is recognised throughout the industry as the voice of the independent quarrying operators in the UK. 

The future of the BAA will encompass a range of new offerings, not only enhancing what the BAA offers but giving our members the chance to be involved with policy and decision making and helping shape the future of the industry. 

The Association provides essential support and advice for members, whilst ensuring that the voice of the members is heard amongst all levels of UK administrations

Since its formation, BAA has developed extensive contacts within the UK Government and devolved administrations, the Civil Service and in Europe. 

We are continually engaged in correspondence and meetings with HM Treasury, HM Customs, Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS), Office of Fair Trading (OFT), Housing, Communities and Local Government (MHCLG), Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA), Environment Agency (EA) and SEPA, Scottish Government and Welsh Assembly to ensure that the views of our members are properly represented on all relevant issues including Planning, the Environment, Legislation, Health & Safety, Road Transport, Competition and SME Support. 

The government has welcomed our involvement, recognising that the views and needs of smaller independent UK owned companies have not always been taken into account when forming new legislation.
