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.
The new Community Empowerment (Scotland) Act 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).
CPPs have a legal responsibility to work with their communities and the third sector to plan, resource and deliver integrated public services that will reduce inequalities and improve local outcomes. The Act placed a legal duty on partners to own and lead the community planning process and ensure that it works effectively and several other public agencies have a legal duty to take part in community planning.
