Our Vision: A successful, appealing, healthy, happy market town
Our Mission: Creating a culture of collaboration and a circular economy legacy that prospers
Moving towards a circular economy in Yorkshire is an immense challenge. It requires unprecedented collaboration across a diverse range of stakeholders and supply chains, a substantial amount of investment and sufficient scale to achieve circular systems.
Our distinctive market towns across North Yorkshire provide the opportunity to test circular economy approaches at a micro-scale. They are small enough to convene a high proportion of stakeholders to achieve critical mass of support, yet large enough to achieve the scale required to close the loop on material and resource flows. With increasing pressures on high streets, the circular economy is a vehicle we can use to drive collaboration, increase operational efficiencies and attract new businesses to our towns.
