Local authorities have a statutory duty of community planning under the Local Government in Scotland Act 2003. Community planning brings together the public sector, private sector, voluntary sector partners and the community to agree priorities on the planning and provision of services. This will ensure the most effective delivery of services and increase the benefits to the community. Further background information on the implementation of Community Planning across Scotland can be found on the Scottish Government Website.
The Outer Hebrides Community Planning Partnership helps co-ordinate initiatives and partnerships that will improve public services for the Outer Hebrides. One of the ways that this takes place is through the implementation of the Single Outcome Agreement.
The Comhairle nan Eilean Siar is represented on the OHCPP by seven representatives. ( List of the Partners and their Representatives )
