What is Community Planning?

Community Planning is about joining up the efforts and resources of the public, business, voluntary and community organisations to better plan, resource and deliver quality services that meet the needs of local people.

By working together with local residents these organisations can meet our aim of delivering the best quality of life for everyone in Aberdeenshire. Partners recognise that by working together we can provide better, more responsive, services.

Community Planning gives you the chance to have a say, be listened to and get involved in action to tackle the things that really matter to you.

Community Planning in Aberdeenshire

Within Aberdeenshire partners and communities work together to deliver the outcomes agreed in the Single Outcome Agreement 2013-2023 and Local Community Plans.

Aberdeenshire covers a huge geographical area and has a population of around residents. Aberdeenshire is split into six administrative areas (Banff, Banff & Buchan, Formartine, Garioch, Kincardine & Mearns and Marr), as highlighted on the map.

As well as focussing on communities of place, we look to engage with communities of interest within Aberdeenshire.
