Barriers: Timescales and statutory processes Reduction in resources Institutional barriers Complexity of Spatial and Community Planning Lack of partnership working Lack of consistency across Scotland Culture
Recommendations and Way Forward 1.There needs to be a recognition of the starting points to making links between Spatial Planning and Community Planning. 2.There are opportunities to align processes to help to deliver Spatial Planning and Community Planning outcomes more effectively and efficiently. 3.Spatial Planning needs to articulate to Community Planning what it can do.
Recommendations and Way Forward 4.Local Authorities and Community Planning Partnerships should give priority to linking Spatial Planning and Community Planning. 5.There needs to be more effective communication between Spatial Planning and Community Planning actors. 6.There is a need to improve Spatial Planners’ knowledge of Community Planning, and where they can contribute.
Recommendations and Way Forward 7.There is a need to explore the landscape of plans for overlap and consistency. 8.There is a need to be clear about roles and responsibilities at different levels of leadership. 9.There is a need to explore how community-led approaches contribute to the delivery of the Community Plan and the Development Plan outcomes. 10.There is a need to ‘drill down’ further to explore practical opportunities and barriers.
