The Council engages with local people and communities in a wide
range of ways to seek their views on the performance of our
services and identify what our strategic priorities should be in
order that we can plan, resource and deliver our services
effectively to meet local need.
The Council has built on the success of its comprehensive
Stakeholder Engagement Programme with the recent consultation
undertaken on improving the primary school estate and how we
can work better together to regenerate the area.
The Council is currently working with community planning partners over the
development of a Partnership Engagement Strategy which will set out
core criteria for engaging with local people and communities over
the design of local public services. The Strategy will
incorporate the requirements of the Scottish Government's Community
Empowerment and Renewal Bill which is due for publication in the
summer of 2013.
