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’.

Local development plans are facing problems in complying with the legal duty to co-operate. The duty, introduced by the Localism Act 2011, obliges local authorities to continuously engage with neighbouring councils when addressing strategic, cross-border development issues.

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