Doing your duty – practice update

This practice review considers the experiences of a selection of local planning authorities in implementing the duty to cooperate. 

It draws on Inspectors' letters and reports from those found to have met the duty and those who have not. It draws out lessons learned and reflects on possible good practice.

With more experience informing the understanding of what the duty requires in practice, important learning is emerging from the local authorities that have been through examination more recently.
