REPORT

Circular economy in urban planning and building permits – possibilities and limitations

The most recent publication from the CIRCuIT project explores the possibilities the four CIRCuIT city administrations – Copenhagen, Hamburg, Helsinki region and London – have for including requirements for circular economy and construction in their urban planning policy instruments and procedures. 

 

ABOUT CIRCUIT

The image is an illustrated graphic of a city, with mint, grey and teal buildings. The road is filled in a golden yellow, with trees on either side of the road.

Circular Construction in Regenerative Cities (CIRCuIT) is a collaborative project funded by the EU's Horizon 2020 programme, bringing together 31 ambitious partners across the entire built environment chain in Copenhagen, Hamburg, Helsinki Region and Greater London.

 

The project aims to bridge the implementation gap between theory, practice and policy and showcase how circular construction approaches can be scaled and replicated across Europe, to support the creation of regenerative cities. 

EXPECTED IMPACTS
