DUTY TO CO-OPERATE Although the Local Plan asserts at paragraph 2.5 that the Duty to Cooperate has been applied, there is no evidence of this, and therefore our Client must register an objection to this and reserve the right to submit further representations once the Duty to Cooperate document is made available. This is important because it will indicate how ABC is responding to unmet housing needs across the market area.

Legal Compliance It will be for an Inspector to assess whether the Local Plan to 2030 has been prepared in accordance with the Duty to Co-operate, alongside other legal and procedural requirements. The County Council notes that the Borough Council has sought to actively engage with neighbouring authorities and other relevant bodies throughout the preparation of the Local Plan in order to ensure consideration has been given to strategic cross-boundary issues. Specifically, KCC recognises the pr

KCC has actively co-operated with the Borough Council in the preparation of its emerging Local Plan and supporting evidence base documents, as well as on the delivery of key strategic sites. As part of the Ashford Borough Council – Kent County Council Delivery Deal (2015), the County Council has set out its full commitment to work closely with the Borough Council on delivering the key 'Big 8' strategic projects and shared priorities; supporting the delivery of the Borough Council's growth agend

Duty to Cooperate 4.1.1 The Duty to Cooperate is a legal requirement established through Section 33(A) of the Planning and Compulsory Purchase Act 2004, as amended by Section 110 of the Localism Act. It requires local authorities to engage constructively, actively and on an ongoing basis with neighbouring authorities on cross-boundary strategic issues throughout the process of Plan preparation. As demonstrated through the outcome of the 2012 Coventry Core Strategy Examination and the 2013

Minerals and Waste KCC – as Local Minerals and Waste Planning Authority – recognises that the draft Local Plan does not make reference to the recently adopted Kent Minerals and Waste Local Plan 2013-2030 which sets out the overarching strategy and planning policies for minerals and waste operations, specifically mineral safeguarding. The supporting Minerals Safeguarding Areas maps identify the potential presence of important economic mineral types (e.g. superficial and crustal geology) in the

Sustainability Appraisal 4.2.1 In accordance with Section 19 of the 2004 Planning and Compulsory Purchase Act, policies set out in Local Plans must be subject to Sustainability Appraisal (SA). Incorporating the requirements of the Environmental Assessment of Plans and Programmes Regulations 2004, SA is a systematic process that should be undertaken at each stage of the Plan's preparation, assessing the effects of the Local Plan's proposals on sustainable development when judged against reas

EGERTON PARISH COUNCIL COMMENTS ON THE ASHFORD LOCAL PLAN The draft Plan is a very thorough document which has been well thought-out and is presented clearly. ABC planners have arrived at a sound and practical interpretation of the Government's National Policy Planning Framework. They have struck a fair balance between economic development, employment, housing needs, leisure, environmental and historic interests. They have recognised the importance of interdependence between rural and urban area

Duty to cooperate (paragraph 2.5) The Local Plan is unsound with regard to the duty to cooperate. The Local Plan has not demonstrated that the duty to cooperate has been discharged since it is unsupported by adequate evidence to describe what the cross-boundary strategic issues are that affect Ashford. The Local Plan refers to a detailed 'Duty to Cooperate' Statement forming part of the evidence base but this document is not yet available to support the Regulation 19 Consultation. It is diffic
