Can you provide an update on the publication of Borough Reduction and Recycling Plans? How many are yet to be received?

Proposal 7.2.1.b in my London Environment Strategy requires all London boroughs to produce Reduction and Recycling Plans (RRPs) by 2020.

I have received draft RRPs from all boroughs. I have so far approved four of these (Enfield, Hackney, Richmond and Tower Hamlets) and a further 17 approval letters are with my office for final sign-off.

Two RRPs are with boroughs for Cabinet approval of final versions that GLA officers have already commented on.

GLA officers are finalising their review of all the remaining RRPs and I expect these to be approved in the coming weeks.
