Interim Duty to Cooperate Statement


The purpose of this Interim Duty to Cooperate Statement is to identify and explain how Tunbridge Wells Borough Council (the Council) has collaborated, engaged and cooperated with neighbouring authorities, public bodies and other stakeholders in meeting DtC requirements in the preparation of the Draft Local Plan. It supports the Draft Local Plan (Regulation 18) which was consulted in Autumn 2019. It is a ‘living’ document which will be updated to demonstrate that the Duty has been met and that activities have been on-going and effective during the preparation of the Plan as it progresses to its Regulation 19 submission; and that such engagement will continue beyond the adoption of the Local Plan.

Note: Appendices 1 to 4 have been published separately alongside this document on the website as they do not meet accessibility regulations. If you would like to be provided with the appendices in an alternative format, please contact Planning Policy by emailing planning.policy@tunbridgewells.gov.uk or phoning 01892 554056.
