Local outcomes improvement plan

23.Under section 6 each community planning partnership must prepare a local outcomes improvement plan. To that end the community planning partnership must identify the local outcomes to which it is to give priority with a view to improving the achievement of the outcomes. The plan will provide a description of the improvement in local outcomes that is sought, the timeframe for achieving the improvement and a description of the needs and circumstances of persons residing in the area of the community planning partnership (subsection (2)). Subsection (3) requires the partnership to consult such community bodies and other persons as it considers appropriate when it prepares its plan. Subsection (4) sets out what a partnership must take account of before it publishes its final plan. This includes representations it receives as a result of the consultations with community bodies and other persons carried out in accordance with subsection (3). The partnership must also take account of the needs and circumstances of people and communities in the area.
