Town and Country Planning (Local Planning) (England) Regulations 2012
The Town and Country Planning (Local Planning) (England) Regulations 2012 consolidate the changes made to the 2004 (Local Development) Regulations and the amendments made to them into a single document. In addition, the regulations incorporate the changes made by the Localism Act 2011.
The Localism Act sets out a series of measures intended to transfer power from central government to local authorities and local communities. It is intended ‘…to help people and their locally elected representatives to achieve their own ambitions.’
Compared to the 2004 Regulations, one of the main changes is that local planning authorities are responsible for publishing their planning activity online for communities to view as soon as possible. Monitoring reports are also to be made publicly available.
The 2012 regulations also prescribe that additional bodies are subject to the ‘duty to co-operate’ under Section 110 of the Localism Act. The views of local enterprise partnerships should also be held in regard by local planning authorities.
