H - Promoting opportunities and supporting access to physical activity and sport for all

This Committee is responsible for the Projects listed below and such other projects that the Council has determined the Committee is responsible for since the Scheme was last reviewed:–

  • Community test sites and empowerment
  • Regeneration of Priority Areas
  • Culture Strategy
  • Sport and Physical Activity Strategy including Stirling’s Sports Village Development

The Community Planning & Regeneration Committee is empowered to perform the following insofar as not limited by reservation to the Council itself:

  1. Formulating, examining and approving policies, strategies and plans relating to urban, rural and social regeneration (whether provided directly by the Council, external organisations or partnerships).
  2. Formulating, examining and approving policies, strategies and plans relating to the Council’s Equality duties.
  3. Devising, in collaboration with the Stirling Community Planning Partnership, a new Single Outcome Agreement for the period to 2017

Where any new policies or changes to policies would have a significant impact on the Council’s strategic objectives, corporate policies or its resources, the Committee should not approve that policy/ change to policy but should instead refer it to Council for approval with or without recommendations.
