Community Planning Partnership

Community Planning Partnership

In each local authority area there is a Community Planning Partnership (CPP)  – and is referred to locally as the Clackmannanshire Alliance. The Alliance’s role is providing the strategic vision and direction for community planning as well as monitoring the implementation of the Local Outcomes Improvement Plan 2017-2027.
This plan sets out partners’ 10 year vision for tackling inequalities and poverty in Clackmannanshire. The plan has been developed in partnership and sets out shared statutory obligations under the Community Empowerment (Scotland) Act 2015. The plan sets out four ambitious strategic outcomes for Clackmannanshire and includes three Locality Priorities focussed on addressing inequality and poverty and improving outcomes for Clackmannanshire. 
The Alliance meets quarterly and is chaired by the Leader of the Council.
