Policy, Planning and Performance

Community planning is about a range of partners in the public and voluntary sectors working together to better plan, resource and deliver quality services that meet the needs of people who live and work in East Ayrshire.

Our community planning partners in East Ayrshire include:

Community planning puts local people at the heart of delivering services. It's not just about creating a plan or a vision but about jointly tackling major issues such as health, transport, employment, housing, education and community safety.

The Community Plan continues to be recognised as the sovereign planning document for the East Ayrshire area, providing the overarching strategic policy framework for the delivery of services by all Partners.

Comprehensive engagement with communities,Partners and other stakeholders in the development of our new Community Plan has confirmed the following as the key priority areas on which we will focus the delivery of services over the life of the Plan:

  • Economy and Skills
  • Safer Communities
  • Wellbeing

Through each Delivery Plan, we will take forward the key priorities and actions that have been shown to make the biggest difference and will bring about real change for local people and communities.
