Design for a Circular Economy Primer

The Mayor has set out his vision of London transitioning to a circular economy in the draft London Plan and his Environment Strategy. The Design for a Circular Economy Primer has been written to help support organisations in the built environment sector understand how they can embed circular economy principles into their projects and design processes.

As part of the Mayor’s Good Growth by Design programme, our Regeneration, Environment and Planning teams have been working with the Mayor’s Design Advocates and the London Waste and Recycling Board (LWARB) and others, to conduct a research inquiry, supporting the development of technical guidance for the draft London Plan policy SI7, ‘Reducing waste and supporting the circular economy’.

The Primer is a summary of the direction the technical guidance will take.
