What is a Community Plan?

A Community Plan brings together the plans of a range of public services, community groups and voluntary organisations and sets out the actions and priorities for your local area for the next 3 years. The local Community Plans have been informed by and have informed the Single Outcome Agreement for Aberdeenshire.  They will do the same for the forthcoming Local Outcomes Improvement Plan.

The current Community Plan runs from 2016-2019.

Copies of previous plans are available to view in the resources section.

How do we monitor progress?

The KMCPG meets on a six weekly basis to discuss progress. Additionally, the KMCPG meets with the Kincardine and Mearns Area Committee and Aberdeenshire Council’s Kincardine and Mearns Area Management Team on a six monthly to monitor progress and an annual report is produced for the Community Planning Board each year. See ‘Performance’ section of the website.

Plans remain ‘live’ documents throughout their lifespan – with actions added and deleted as necessary.

Copies of previous annual reports are available to view in the resources section.

How do you develop a Community Plan?

Community Plans are renewed every three years and many groups and people are engaged or consulted in the process, including partners, Elected Members and our communities.  Information is collected together into a Strategic Assessment by the Partnership Analyst to provide an overview of local needs and upcoming issues.  This Strategic Assessment is then used to engage partners and communities in dialogue and deliberation that leads to agreeing local priorities and actions within the Community Plan.

We are always aiming to improve our information and engagement and communities may be asked to get involved, for example, through Community Forums, Community Council Forums, surveys, focus groups, and other workshops.  Community views and priorities are also included through engagement they carry out by themselves, such as Community Action Plans.
