The East Dunbartonshire Community Planning Partnership is committed to reducing inequality and to targeting resources where they are needed the most.
As a result the ‘place approach’ is being used to work within those areas which experience the most inequality. This means the Community Planning partners work with communities to alleviate local issues with tailored solutions – ensuring that local people are central to the process.
Using local and national data, the four areas which have been identified as ‘place areas’ are Harestanes and Hillhead, Twechar, Lennoxtown, and Auchinairn.
Led by East Dunbartonshire Council, the Community Planning Partnership works with the local communities to improve provision and give community led change in these areas.
Crucial to this approach is the locality plans which identify the key area of focus for the community and Community Planning partners over the next five years. These plans will look at addressing the key issues of social inequality and bridging gaps between our communities.
The locality plans are being refreshed and we want local people in each of the four areas to help shape the future delivery of services. The current plans can be found here.
To get involved we're looking for individuals and community groups to complete a short survey highlighting the issues that matter most and the current gaps that need filled.
