Community planning

Community Planning

Community Planning is all about how our local public services work together with local communities and third sector organisations to plan and deliver services that will improve long term outcomes and tackle inequalities in Stirling.

We know that by working together we can achieve much more than we would by trying to do things on our own and collectively we can resolve some of the complex and deep-rooted inequalities in our communities and can better target our resources where we can make the biggest difference.  

Community planning has been happening in Stirling since 1997.  However, in 2015, a new Community Empowerment (Scotland) Act came into force which makes significant amendments to community planning.  Under this new Act, community planning became a statutory requirement for all local authority areas in Scotland and each local authority area must operate a Community Planning Partnership (CPP).  

Stirling Community Planning Partnership

Stirling Council has a duty, as a partner in the Stirling Community Planning Partnership to bring together organisations and communities to identify what the community needs and to jointly agree and prioritise actions to deliver them.
