Duty to cooperate

Summaries of strategic issues we have worked on with other local planning authorities and organisations.

We work with other organisations and local planning authorities to ensure that strategic priorities across local boundaries (including minerals supply) are properly co-ordinated and clearly reflected in local plans.

Planning authorities need to show evidence of how they have effectively cooperated to plan for issues with cross boundary impacts when their local plans are submitted for examination. This is known as the Duty to Cooperate.

Strategic priorities are where sustainable development or the use of land has, or would have, a significant impact on at least two planning areas and includes County Council matters. 

We have engaged with other bodies during the preparation of the Submission Draft Joint Minerals Local Plan which covers a number of strategic cross boundary matters.

A Duty to Cooperate statement has been prepared, setting out how we have fulfilled this duty when preparing the Submission Draft. This has been submitted with the Plan for examination.
