The Town and Country Planning (Local Planning) (England) (Amendment) Regulations 2012
The Planning and Compulsory Purchase Act 2004 (“the Act”) established a system of local development planning in England. The Town and Country Planning (Local Planning) (England) Regulations 2012 (“the Principal Regulations”) make provision for the operation of that system. Section 33A of the Act imposes a duty on local planning authorities, county councils and prescribed persons to co-operate with each other and with persons prescribed under section 33A(9) in relation to the planning of certain categories of sustainable development or use of land. Each person bound by this duty must also have regard to the activities of persons prescribed under section 33A(9), so far as they are relevant to activities specified in section 33A(3). These Regulations amend the Principal Regulations so that such prescribed persons include each local nature partnership.
