Although the Examination in Public has still to be re-arranged, the Planning Inspectors have reviewed the Council’s Duty to Co-operate with other local authorities when preparing the draft Local Plan. The Inspectors have written to Buckinghamshire Council to advise that it is their conclusion that the procedures required in regard to the Duty to Co-operate with Slough Borough Council have not been correctly followed. Unless the Council can demonstrate otherwise, the Inspectors cannot consider the Local Plan to be compliant and there is a strong likelihood that the Council will have to withdraw it.
