This paper  examines how development plans and other activities present the challenges of the circular transition in the city-region of Pécs, Hungary, an Eastern-Central European city. The analytical framework of performance management is used as inspiration to assess the performance of the circular economy in the region. Creating a more circular economy is an aspiration for the city although there is no specific plan for its delivery at the time of writing. The findings show that despite a long-term commitment to circular economy, barriers in the legal framework, autonomy of local government and a distorted construction and waste management market impede progress.
