Duty to Co-operate and the New Local Plan
The Duty to Co-operate was established in the Localism Act (2011). It places a legal obligation on local planning authorities, county council in England and public bodies to engage constructively, actively and on an ongoing basis to maximise the effectiveness of local Plan preparation in the context of strategic cross boundary matters.
The statement sets out how Braintree District Council will deal with its obligations under the Duty.
