Aberdeenshire Community Planning Partnership will work towards delivering the priorities in the Local Outcomes Improvement Plan. The Plan is currently in development for approval in September 2017, and looks ahead to 2027.
There will be a chance to comment on the three LOIP priorities in the formal consultation period during the Summer. The priorities are:
Within the Connected and Cohesive Communities priority, we will also develop Locality Plans for three areas in Aberdeenshire: Banff, Fraserburgh and Peterhead.
The Local Outcomes Improvement Plan and the Locality Plans are all requirements of the Community Empowerment Act (Scotland) 2015. This Act puts emphasis on empowering communities to participate and have involvement in decisions about services in their communities and to take on a more active role.
The Community Planning Partnership also has responsibility to oversee Community Justice work in Aberdeenshire. This has been delegated to the Community Justice Partnership and information on their work can be viewed.
