Abstract

The paper concerns the changes that have occurred in the planning practices following the revision of the institutional and planning systems in Italy and in England, as a result of the growing emergence of the concept of subsidiarity, which in these States has led to a strong affirmation of “Localism” as a new paradigm of planning. Object of the paper is the presence, in both countries, of an obligation to cooperate ("duty to cooperate" in the England Localism Act 2011, section 110; obligation of union for diverse municipalities in the Italian Law n. 135/2012) and its implications in terms of rescaling of planning spaces and governance, in a comparative perspective between Italy and England. The contribution, through the analysis of diverse joint spatial planning practices in Italy and England, aims to answer to some common issues, covering: - the extension of cooperation, which in England is completely open and “free”, while in Italy is based on two parameters (population and area) totally divorced from territorial specificities; - the presence of overlapping spaces of cooperation, between joint local development plans and development planning documents taken forward for the area of the LEPs (Local Enterprise Partnerships); - the effectiveness of cooperation: the duty to cooperate cannot become a “duty to agree”, so what does it happens in case of disagreement or conflict? Or if an involved LPA refuses to cooperate? - the role of the planner, not only to demonstrate the link between plan and rules, but in activating practices of effective strategic planning across local boundaries; - finally, the results of cooperation in terms of shared sub-regional strategies. The expected results are concerned with drawing, deriving or disseminating lessons from the international cases, in order to approach supra-local planning practices as co-operative platforms between different councils, capable to really imprint local planning strategies.
