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.
