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 are informed by and inform the Single Outcome Agreement for Aberdeenshire.

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 MCPG meets on a six weekly basis to discuss progress. Additionally, the MCPG meets with the Marr Area Committee and Aberdeenshire Council’s Marr 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, in consultation with Elected Members, partners and our communities. A Strategic Assessment is produced by the Partnership Analyst to provide an overview of local needs and upcoming issues. This Strategic Assessment is then used, in conjunction with further community engagement and consultation, to inform the local priorities and actions within the Community Plan. Communities may be asked to give their views through Ward Forums, Community Council Forums, surveys, focus groups and other workshops.
