Community planning is about how public bodies work together, and with local communities, to design and deliver better services that make a real difference to people’s lives.
It drives public service reform by bringing together local public services with the communities they serve, and provides a focus for partnership working that targets specific local circumstances. Partners work together to improve local services and to ensure they meet the needs of local people, especially those needing services most.
Community Planning Partnerships
A Community Planning Partnership (or CPP) is the name given to all those services that come together to take part in community planning. There are 32 CPPs across Scotland, one for each council area. Each CPP focuses on where partners’ collective efforts and resources can add the most value to their local communities, with particular emphasis on reducing inequality.
