Event description
A webinar on the role of pre-redevelopment audits in this transition to a more circular built environment.

About this event

The circular economy is recognised as an integral part of ‘growing a good economy’ within the new London Plan (the spatial development strategy for London) adopted in 2021. This plan sets out policies requiring large schemes to be developed in line with ‘circular economy’ principles – minimising demolition waste and designing new buildings so they can be disassembled and the materials re-used at the end of the building’s life as well as requiring 95 per cent of construction and demolition waste to be reused, recycled or recovered.

As part of the CIRCuIT project (https://www.circuit-project.eu/), the London partners have been exploring the role of pre-redevelopment audits in this transition to a more circular built environment and what can be done at project and local policy level.

Join CIRCuIT project partners the Greater London Authority (GLA), Building Research Establishment (BRE) and Grimshaw Architects, along with AECOME and one of our demonstration collaboration partners, Erith, to discuss:

  • What are pre-development audits?
  • How do they support the new London Plan policy?
  • Case studies on beneficial outcomes and lessons learnt

This event is part of Circular Economy Week #CEWeekLDN and supported by funding from the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 821201, project CIRCuIT (Circular Construction in Regenerative Cities).

Organiser ReLondon

Organiser of Pre-development audits as part of a circular built environment

ReLondon is the operating name of the London Waste and Recycling Board (LWARB), a partnership of the Mayor of London and the London boroughs to improve waste and resource management. The city’s economic and environmental future depends on our transitioning to a low-carbon circular economy. And at ReLondon, we work to ensure that London’s businesses, local government and communities thrive by helping them make the very best use of resources and materials.
