Report by Chief Executive.
There was submitted a report by the Chief Executive relative to the development of the new Community Plan.

The Community Empowerment Act 2015 introduced a statutory requirement for community planning partners to publish a new ten year Local Outcomes Improvement Plan by 1 October 2017, referred to as the “Community Plan”.  A key requirement of the new plan was that it had to develop at least one locality plan which would address inequality across an agreed geographical area or community of interest.  Work had been undertaken by community planning partners to commence the development of the Community Plan and to identify potential options for the locality plans. This had specifically been aligned to early work on the preparation of a new Council Plan covering the period 2017/2022.

The report provided a summary of the development work undertaken for the new Community Plan which included engagement with communities and partners to consider the findings.  The information gathered through the process was used to shape common themes and areas of priority. It was intended that further work would be undertaken by officers to finalise the content of the Community Plan for submission to full Council for approval on 28 September 2017. 

The Strategic Partnerships & Inequalities Manager gave a presentation which summarised Community Planning to date; detailed the need for data and research; highlighted the consultation and engagement sessions; identified common themes and priorities; outlined the development of locality planning; and identified a timeline for the Community Plan. 

Discussion took place on the development of locality plans for Renfrewshire and the need to focus on reducing inequalities and the promotion of activity to prevent future inequalities and reactive spending.  It was noted that Scottish Index of Multiple Deprivation (SIMD) data had been used to identify areas and in particular to focus on 5% of the most deprived areas within Renfrewshire.

It was proposed that consideration be given to increasing the Scottish Index of Multiple Deprivation (SIMD) data which identified the most deprived areas within Renfrewshire to 10% of the population in the development of the new Community Plan.  This was agreed.


(a)   Note progress made in developing the new Community Plan; and

(b)   That in relation to the development of the new Community Plan consideration be given to increasing the Scottish Index of Multiple Deprivation (SIMD) data which identified the most deprived areas within Renfrewshire to 10% of the population in the development of the new Community Plan.
