A Circular Cities Approach to Regeneration in London? Study of King’s Cross Central
This dissertation examines the Kings Cross regeneration scheme from a circular cities perspective, addressing the three circular capacities of looping, adapting and regenerating. It also draws on the research on heritage-led regeneration to study the role of the site's rich heritage that has been preserved development. The research is based on a qualitative content analysis of planning documents and interviews with professionals involved in the project. The analysis concludes that the scheme exhibits looping, adapting and regenerating capacities to some extent and demonstrates the multidimensional benefits that emerge from a circular approach to urban regeneration.

Has the Green Premium increased in recent years? An investigation using pricing evidence from the Central London Office Market
Increasing evidence of climate change is leading to legislation and market pressure around the carbon emissions of buildings, particularly in the UK. There have been several studies examining whether environmental certifications such as EPCs and BREEAM result in higher prices being paid for buildings. However, the data used in these studies is now quite old, predating recent developments in the field, including higher numbers of certified buildings and greater attention being paid to ESG issues. This study examines data on 592 investment transactions in the Central London Office market between 2017 and 2021. Using a hedonic regression method, statistically significant price premia of 20.6% were found for BREEAM certification and 3.9% for a single-step increase in EPC rating. However, only BREEAM produced a statistically significant yield premium, of - 0.24 percentage points. The relevance of these results, and the implications for the market, are discussed alongside other recent research in the area.

The Sustainable Last Mile: Understanding Travel Behaviours to Suburban Rail Stations
The ‘last mile’ trip, from transit hub to home, is a growing phenomenon in transport research and investment. Yet it has received minimal attention in the suburbs, where most last mile trips are done by car. This dissertation explores key factors affecting travel behaviour for the last mile — the built environment; trip satisfaction; and attitudes — using UK case studies of the Oxford and Oxford Parkway railway stations. Quantitative and qualitative analyses reveal lessons for policy and governance, adding to a renewed emphasis on active travel during the Covid-19 pandemic.
