Tower Hamlets Waste SPD

Client:

In Progress

Useful Projects have partnered up with BPP Consulting and SOENECS to provide Tower Hamlets Council with a Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) on Reuse, Recycling and Waste.

The Tower Hamlets Waste Management Strategy 2018-2030 sets a target to achieve 35% of household recycling by 2022. This SPD will be a step-by-step guidance to developers when submitting proposals for new housing projects, with the objective of optimising waste segregation, logistics, operation, collection, and increase reuse and recycling rates.

We have developed a mapping of strategies based on type of development (no of storeys, no of units etc), which includes a user-friendly decision tree and a 10-step guide to developers to comply from planning pre-application to operation and prepare the Reuse, Recycling and Waste plan.

This guidance document, which include strategies needed to comply with the Mayor of London’s Environment Strategy (2018), could become a useful best practice template.
