Towards a Minerals Local Plan for Derbyshire and Derby

Towards a Strategy for Transporting Minerals

Duty to Cooperate

4          Duty to Co-operate

4.1       NPPG sets out that in planning for minerals extraction, mineral planning authorities and other bodies are expected to co-operate on strategic cross-border matters. The main issue that we have identified in terms of transport is the need to safeguard transport routes and distribution facilities, in District and Unitary prepared Local Plans, from other development. There may also be other duty to co-operate issues relating to the provision of strategic infrastructure, for example, the HS2 rail line and strategic rail freight facilities.
