What Is Community Planning?
Community planning is about how public bodies work together and with local communities to design and deliver better services that make a real difference to local people’s lives. Community planning is a key driver of public service reform at local level. It provides a focus for partnership working driven by strong shared leadership, directed towards distinctive local circumstances. Partners work together to improve local services, ensuring that they meet the needs of local people, especially for those people who need those services most.
West Lothian Community Planning Partnership was set up to identify, assess and prioritise what is important for West Lothian’s communities, and enable the setting of achievable and demonstrable outcomes for the Local Outcomes Improvement Plan.
