Partners and community plan
Community planning is about councils and other public bodies like the police, the fire and rescue service and the NHS working with local communities, businesses, charities and voluntary groups. Together they plan and deliver better services to improve the lives of local people.

The Edinburgh Partnership's Community Plan
Community planning partnerships have to produce a three year community plan for the Scottish Government. This shows how they will tackle some of the big social, economic and environmental issues in their area. They do this by looking at local information and listening to what communities and partnerships say about services.

The Prevention Strategic Plan complements the Community Plan and should be read alongside it. You can download it from the community plan documents below.
Neighbourhood Partnerships make local plans which support the community plan. Find out more on the Neighbourhood Partnership website.
How we keep track
