WHAT IS COMMUNITY PLANNING?
Community Planning is a process which helps public agencies to work together with the community to plan and deliver better services which make a real difference to people’s lives.
The aims of Community Planning in Scotland are:
- making sure people and communities are genuinely engaged in the decisions made on public services which affect them; allied to
- a commitment from organisations to work together, not apart, in providing better public services.
There are two further key principles in addition to the two main aims outlined above:
- Community Planning as the key over-arching partnership framework helping to co-ordinate other initiatives and partnerships and where necessary acting to rationalise and simplify a cluttered landscape;
- the ability of Community Planning to improve the connection between national priorities and those at regional, local and neighbourhood levels.
