Community Participation Action Learning Report

SCDC worked with the Improvement Service to explore what Community Planning Partnerships think about the meaningful engagement and participation of communities in planning processes.

Using an action research process, the aim was to develop learning, take actions, improve practice and reflect together on opportunities and challenges in the current context.

The findings are intended to provide learning for CPPs, Scottish Government and other key stakeholders on what helps to improve community planning processes, and what still needs to change in tackling operational, structural and cultural barriers.

The paper can also be used by CPPs as a learning resource which showcases good practice, and highlights lessons learned.
