The duty to cooperate will be abolished by the Levelling Up and Regeneration Bill. The Bill was introduced to Parliament on 11 May and has continued its passage through Parliament and Committee stage.

It will remain vital for local planning authorities to work together to make sure that cross-boundary issues are properly addressed, and we expect them to continue to plan for and deliver the housing, other development, and infrastructure that our communities need.
