Section 33A of the Planning and Compulsory Purchase Act 2004, as inserted by section 110 of the Localism Act 2011, introduced a duty to co-operate in relation to the planning of sustainable development.
The duty requires the council to co-operate with other local planning authorities and other public bodies in preparing and developing development plan documents and other local development documents so far as it relates to a strategic matter. Regard must also be had to the activities of the local enterprise partnership.
The Town and Country Planning (Local Planning) (England) Regulations 2012 require that details of activities undertaken in relation to the duty to cooperate are recorded and published in a monitoring report.
In accordance with these requirements, an annual report is published providing details of Salford's main activities in relation to the duty to cooperate. The latest report, along with those for previous years, is available to download at the bottom of this page.
