Local Nature Partnerships to be Included in The Duty to Cooperate

Now that many Local Nature Partnerships (LNPs) have been designated, the Government will amend the regulations governing the preparation of local plans, making LNPs a prescribed body under the duty to cooperate. This means that bodies bound by the duty will have to have regard to the views of LNPs on strategic planning matters, further reinforcing the Government’s commitment to ensure that environmental issues are properly considered through the plan making process.
