Action Taken Under Delegated Authority (Significant Operation Decision): Worthing Borough Council and Crawley Borough Council Statement of Common Ground

Local Planning Authorities are required by the Localism Act 2011 to meet the 'Duty to Cooperate', that is to engage constructively and actively on an on-going basis on planning matters that impact on more than one local planning area.

The National Planning Policy Framework and National Planning Policy Guidance sets out the strategic issues where co-operation might be appropriate. In this regard, Local Planning Authorities are expected to demonstrate evidence of having effectively cooperated to plan for issues with cross-boundary impacts when their Local Plans are submitted for examination through the preparation of agreed Statements of Common Ground (SoCG).

Both Worthing and Crawley Borough Councils are undertaking Local Plan Reviews. This SoCG helps the authorities to meet the Duty to Cooperate requirement as part of the Local Plan Review processes by setting out the cross-boundary strategic planning issues that exist and/or are likely to arise in the foreseeable future between the two Councils.


On 13 May 2021 the Head of Economy and Planning signed a joint Statement of Common Ground with Worthing Borough Council to cover both Authorities' current Local Plan Review (background document: Worthing Borough Council and Crawley Borough Council Statement of Common Ground, May 2021).
