Useful Projects was appointed by the London Waste and Recycling Board (LWARB) and Greater London Authority (GLA) to develop policy guidance describing a new method for producing Circular Economy statements, which will have to be submitted by developers as specified in policy SI7 of the London Plan.

Working alongside our sister companies; Expedition Engineering, Useful Studio, and Thomas.Matthews, we coordinated with BAM Construction to develop impactful guidance by engaging with industry experts and policy designers.

The Circular Economy Statement is available here.

This guidance requires proposals to set out how three core circular economy principles will be achieved:

  • Conserving resources, increasing resource efficiency, and sourcing sustainably.
  • Designing to eliminate waste (and for ease of maintenance).
  • Managing waste sustainably and at the highest value.

Embedding circular economy principles

Our team also co-authored the GLA’s ‘Design for a Circular Economy’ publication, which was written to help support organisations in the built environment sector to understand how they can embed circular economy principles into their projects and design processes.

Read the publication here.

We now support major development projects to develop Circular Economy Strategies and Circular Economy Statements for planning, using our circular economy toolkit.
