Community planning

Addressing and meeting the needs and circumstances of citizens living in Argyll and Bute.

Argyll and Bute Outcomes Improvement Plan
The main aim of the Community Planning Partnership is to deliver the outcomes within the Argyll and Bute Outcomes Improvement Plan (ABOIP). The purpose of the ABOIP is to set out the needs and circumstances of citizens living in Argyll and Bute, identify the outcomes to which priority is to be given by the community planning partnership, with a view to improving these, and set out what success would look like in achieving the outcomes including how this will be measured and monitored. 

The new ABOIP was published in February 2024 following an extensive consultation with individuals and community planning partners. Almost 2,000 residents took part in our ‘Improving Lives in Argyll and Bute’ survey and analysis of the results has identified the outcomes of Transport Infrastructure, Housing and Community Wellbeing as the most important to people in the area. We will keep you up-to-date on these pages as we focus our work around these three outcomes.
