7 Requirements How the authority proposes to implement the plan They must set out: –actions required to deliver plan policies and proposals; –the name of the person who is to carry out the action; and –the timescale for carrying out each action May be expected to include the delivery of key infrastructure and the preparation of supplementary guidance A key tool in instigating action and co-ordinating the activity of a range of agencies and organisations. OverviewRequirementsReviewGood Practice

8 Requirements Consider scope and style of the Action Programme at an early stage to ensure that deliverability guides the content of the plans themselves. Consult and consider the views of: –the key agencies –the Scottish Ministers; –anyone named in the Action Programme. Submitted to Ministers alongside proposed SDPs and LDPs Adopted and published within three months of the plans, kept under review and republish at least every two years OverviewRequirementsReviewGood Practice

20 But what about the process of action programming?

21 Good Practice

22 Key issues Too much focus on product as opposed to process Left too late in process to start thinking Discussion with delivery partners needs timed correctly Need to use AP to test plan and site effectiveness Not linked to corporate/budget planning Out of date before it is published Just a status report – not driving delivery OverviewRequirementsReviewGood Practice

23 Good practice themes Purpose - Stimulate delivery not just record actions - Ensure plan is effective and deliverable = iterative relationship between DP/AP - Key project planning tool Scope - Statutory requirements – actions/persons/timescales Consider scale: plan-wide/ location-specific/ site-specific - Avoid overlap with other tiers - Group similar actions - Develop SMART actions Process - Early circulation/consultation - Formation of a delivery group - Corporate process/product – LAs and stakeholders - Change wider decision-making and budget-forming processes - Live updates and 2 yearly publication Product - Table format most common - Short and concise more effective - Spatial emphasis rather than thematic - Links rather than full details - Proforma or clarity on statutory/commonly- used elements?

24 Action Programme - Product OverviewRequirementsReviewGood Practice Essential (statutory) Delivery Actions Timescale for Conclusion Named Person (Organisation/Team/Individual) Commonly Used Table / List Format Reference (page, policy, area etc.) Delivery Lead / Partners / Stakeholders Progress Updates Additional Information Priority Designation Risk Designation Funding Source / Position Programme / Build Rate Policy Theme / Area Groupings Partner / Stakeholder Logos Weblinks Location Plans Contact Information Completions / Approvals Update Policy or Site per page Report Format Use of Colour / Symbols
