The Local Government in Scotland Act (2003)
community planning in Scotland
  • Taken from the Statutory Guidance
  • Improving public services and making a
    difference to the lives of people who use them
    are the most important challenges for the
    Scottish Executive, local government, voluntary
    and community groups and other public bodies in
    Scotland. The Community Planning process in
    acting as a framework for making public services
    responsive to, and organised around, the needs of
    communities, has a key role in ensuring these
    challenges are met.

  • The two main aims of Community Planning can be
    described as
  • 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.
