Local Community Planning Groups
There are six Local Community Planning Groups (LCPGs) in Aberdeenshire, aligned to the council’s administrative areas. Each LCPG is chaired by the Area Manager for Aberdeenshire Council and is supported by a Local Community Planning Officer from Aberdeenshire Council. Membership for each LCPG is determined by the needs of each area but typically includes representatives from Police Scotland, SFRS, NHS Grampian, Third Sector, Community Learning and Development (CLD), amongst other partners.
The Local Community Planning Groups are responsible for producing, monitoring and delivering actions as outlined in the Local Community Plans for each area. These three-year plans are produced in conjunction with communities, based on local strategic assessments, to set priorities at a local level.
Community Planning Officers are based in the each of the six administrative areas across Aberdeenshire. Their role is support and facilitate the work of the Local Community Planning Groups and to improve community engagement within their area. For more information on the work of Local Community Planning Groups please see the area pages.
