In April 2002 a levy on aggregate extraction was introduced. Part of the money raised by this levy is being used to finance the Aggregates Levy Sustainability Fund (ALSF). The aim of the ALSF is to address the environmental and social costs of aggregate extraction by delivering environmental improvements, minimising the demand for primary aggregates and reducing the local effects of aggregate extraction. English Nature has awarded Rye Harbour Nature Reserve three grants from the ALSF, because of the shingle extraction that took place in the last century. The latest project is called "Rye Harbour: A shingle community".
