What is Community Planning?
- Community planning is the process through which the connections between national priorities decided by the Scottish Governement and those at Highland, local and neighbourhood levels are improved. This process has found focus through the Single Outcome Agreement which requires local authorities and community planning partners to detail how they will achieve the 15 national outcomes set by the Scottish Government.
- It is about making sure that people and communities in the Highlands are genuinely engaged in making decisions on public services which affect them.
- It requires a commitment from organisations in the Highlands to work together, not apart, in providing better public services.
- It provides the over-arching partnership framework within which other initiatives and partnerships can be co-ordinated and, where necessary, acting to rationalise and simplify public sector working arrangements.
