In 2015 RTPI London will host a series of events focused on different planning themes in London. One of the chosen themes is “Planning for London’s Infrastructure”. This is an opportunity to debate on the future planning issues surrounding the infrastructure in the Capital.
February’s event in the series considers the specialism of Waste Planning. While outwardly unglamorous, it is nonetheless a fundamental area of expertise in infrastructure planning. London alone produces 55,000 tons of waste per day and the city’s ability to function would be severely curtailed with even a moderate reduction in its ability to handle its rubbish. Where there’s much, there’s brass goes the old saying and with an ever-changing environment regarding recycling, pollution and energy-from-waste, this is an increasingly important topic. Join us to learn how waste planning operates in London, and find how this potentially vast resource stream may be exploited in years to come.
