The services delivered by the Council and our partner organisations are governed by a wide range of plans, policies and strategies.

Community Planning

Working with our Community Planning partners, we produce the Community Plan to drive forward all the projects which contribute to our joint objectives, and the Single Outcome Agreement to show whether or not we have achieved our goals. You can read more about the Community Plan and Single Outcome Agreement on the Community Planning website.

Service plans, policies and strategies

In addition, the Council has a range of plans, policies and strategies which are based on a particular activity. These include topics such as Housing and Waste Management.

Many of these are published elsewhere on our website and a basic topic search should help you to find the policy you are interested in. If you are unable to find what you are searching for, the Policy, Planning and Performance unit holds a library of current policies, plans and strategies which will be made available on request.

All of the key plans, policies and strategies within the Council must first be approved by Cabinet, while scrutiny is carried out by the Governance and Scrutiny Committee.

For more information on this please see our Committees page.
