Community planning

In Scotland, the Local Government in Scotland Act 2003 places duties on local authorities to initiate, facilitate and maintain Community Planning.

Local authorities have a duty to develop a comprehensive Community Plan along with relevant stakeholders to promote or improve the social, economic and environmental well-being of their areas and contribute to the achievement of sustainable development in Scotland.

In North Lanarkshire, this is done through the North Lanarkshire Partnership.
