Community Planning

Defined in the Local Government in Scotland Act 2003, at its heart Community Planning is the process by which public bodies work together to plan and deliver public services efficiently, and work with communities to plan and deliver public services effectively.

In Edinburgh these functions are discharged by the Edinburgh Partnership ‘family’ which includes the Edinburgh Partnership Board, the Edinburgh Partnership Executive, a range of Strategic Partnerships and local Neighbourhood Partnerships.
