No5 Chambers’ Ian Dove features in Planning Magazine article
No5 Chambers’ Ian Dove has been interviewed for an article in Planning Magazine. Dove was discussing how local authorities are struggling to meet their ‘duty to co-operate’.

However, councils and local authorities are being told by planning inspectors that they are failing to meet or comply with this duty.
