The Community Empowerment (Scotland) Act 2015 and community planning

Community planning has been happening in Stirling since 1997.  However, in 2015, a new Community Empowerment (Scotland) Act came into force which makes significant amendments to community planning.  Under this new Act, community planning became a statutory requirement for each of the 32 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 5 key partners to own and lead the community planning process and ensure that it works effectively and legal duty on several other public agencies to take part.
