About Community Planning
The main aim of the Community Planning Partnership is to deliver the outcomes within the Single outcome agreement (SOA). The purpose of the SOA is to detail strategic or high level priorities, identify the outcomes which will be delivered by the partners either individually or jointly, and show how those outcomes will contribute to one or more of the Scottish Government national outcomes
There are 16 national outcomes. They describe what the Government wants to achieve over the next 10 years. The Community Plan and Single Outcome Agreement contributes to the delivery of these national outcomes and delivers better outcomes for our communities.
