Welcome to the Kincardine and Mearns Community Planning Group

Welcome to the Kincardine & Mearns section of the Aberdeenshire Community Planning website.  It is managed by the Kincardine & Mearns (K&M) Community Planning Group, which along with the wider Community Planning Partnership is made up of a range of partners.

The group uses this website to provide formal information about the work being carried out in partnership in the local area, including reports and minutes of meetings.  There is a lot happening; a lot to celebrate, and keeping everyone informed is something we are always trying to do better.

We also have our partnership blog ‘K&M Communities’ and the K&M Communities Facebook page and Twitter feed, where partners share less formal news more regularly.  We are always happy to receive and share appropriate content and comments.

Our main work is organised through the K&M Local Community Plan.  Please take a look for the priorities we’re focusing on and the actions being taken.
