The Scottish Government have launched consultation on guidance and draft regulations for community planning in accordance with the Community Empowerment (Scotland) Act 2015.
This consultation is designed to give people the opportunity to share their views on both the proposed guidance and the draft regulation, made under Section 9: Localities of the Act.
Part 2 of the Act imposes duties on Community Planning Partnerships (CPPs) and Community Planning Partners around the planning and delivery of improved local outcomes, and the involvement of community bodies at all stages of community planning.
Tackling inequalities will be a specific focus of this process, and CPPs will produce “locality plans” at a more local level for areas experiencing particular disadvantage.
The consultation paper is available on the Scottish Government consultation hub website. The closing date for responses is Monday 13th June 2016.
