SCDC response to Scottish Parliament call for evidence on Community Empowerment (Scotland) Bill

SCDC has submitted our response to the Local Government and Regeneration Committee's call for evidence on the Community Empowerment (Scotland) Bill. In our response, we argue that the legislation will not empower masrginalised and disadvantaged communities unless they are properly supported to take advantage of the Bill's opportunities.

 We also contend that the Bill should place stronger duties on community planning partners to engage with communities, and that this engagement should be in line with the National Standards for Community Engagement.
