Statement of common ground

A statement of common ground is a written record of the progress made by strategic policy-making authorities during the process of planning for strategic cross-boundary matters.

These following Statements of Common Ground have been prepared to demonstrate that Lambeth’s Draft Revised Lambeth Local Plan – Proposed Submission Version January 2020 (DRLLP PSV 2020) is ‘based on effective joint working on cross-boundary strategic matters’, in accordance with the requirements of paragraph 35 of the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF).

The first set of Statements are between Lambeth and its neighbouring boroughs.

The second set of Statements are between Lambeth and waste planning authorities that receive ‘strategic’ amounts of waste exports from Lambeth. A ‘strategic’ amount of waste is that over certain thresholds which have been agreed by waste planning authorities across the wider south east.

These statements were agreed by Lambeth through a cabinet member decision in December 2019.
