Community Planning is described by the Scottish Government as...
'... about how public bodies work together and with the local community to plan for, resource and provide or secure the provision of services which improve local outcomes in a local authority area, with a view to reducing inequalities.'
The Community Empowerment Act (Scotland) 2015 provides a new statutory framework for how Community Planning should work in Scotland. It outlines the duties public agencies have and the role they have collectively in acting together to tackle disadvantage within our communities.
