Waste storage information for architects

This guidance is for architects planning any new development, modernisation or change of use. The guidance applies only to the Royal Borough of Greenwich.

The Royal Borough of Greenwich assesses new developments, extensions or changes of use to make sure they provide adequate storage facilities for waste and recyclable material.

You need to consider this requirement at the earliest stages of the design process and include details on drawings submitted for planning permission.
