Growing number of disagreements despite Duty to Cooperate

Date: 27/4/2017

Despite the duty to cooperate, neighbouring authorities are frequently falling out over the thorny issue of meeting housing need, so says Planning magazine.

Catriona Riddell, strategic planning specialist for the Planning Officers Society, says an additional reason for the growing number of disagreements is that councils' local plans have had to identify much more land for homes since the introduction of the National Planning Policy Framework in 2012. 

Riddell says: "This round of local plans is the first time that [planning authorities] have had to deal with, in some cases, 50, 60, or 70 per cent higher levels of growth than they ever had in the past."
