What is Community Planning?

Community Planning is a process which helps public agencies to work together with the community to plan and deliver better services which make a real difference to people's lives. (Improvement Service)

Rooted in the Local Government in Scotland Act 2003 that places a statutory duty on the Council to lead the process and for others to support community planning

how did it start in argyll
How did it start in Argyll?
  • Got underway well before the 2003 legislation
  • Small group of partners in Management Committee, chaired by AIE
  • Concentrated on “what were we not delivering?”
  • Should we focus on poverty/excluded/SIMD?
  • Should we focus on jobs/housing/transport?
  • Who was “the community”?
how did we know what the community wanted cared about valued
How did we know what the community wanted/cared about/valued?
  • Ask the Community Councils?
  • Utilise a Citizen’s Panel?
  • Receive direction about how financial allocations are made?
2009 how is argyll and bute performing
2009- how is Argyll and Bute performing?
  • We have a revised Community Plan almost completed
  • We have a Single Outcome Agreement (SOA) in place
  • We have a “vigorous”* Partnership who have been involved in the CP and SOA preparation
  • There is a strong sense of partnership working
  • We still need to improve buy-in from some partners at all levels of their organisations……should that be ALL partners?
  • We still need to overcome “silo working”

* “vigorous” = debate and argument!
