Shared Learning and Resources

The original REPURPOSE pilot project has come to an end however we have created useful resources including impact reports and training modules in order to share best practice and learning from this project among other stakeholders across London, the UK and Europe.

REPURPOSE Implementation Guide for Housing Providers

REPURPOSE Toolkit - Bringing the Social Benefits of Reuse to Your Estate

The REPURPOSE Toolkit is a resource for residents who are interested in setting up similar re-use schemes on their own estates.

Re-Use Policy Pack

The REPURPOSE Policy Pack is a resource for policy makers and service planners seeking guidance on the justifications for re-use, and how to write it into procedures.

Watch parts two, three and four of the presentation, or download the slides.

Estate Mapping

Each of the five REPURPOSE estates were mapped by Groundwork London's in-house GIS team.

The original maps, which include flytipping hotspots and demographics, can be viewed here.

We have re-visited the fly-tipping hotspots mapped on each estate in order to record any changes in the number and location of fly-tipping hotspots since the original estate mapping exercise.

The updated maps, which show the comparison between the two mapping exercises, are available here.
