Community Empowerment (Scotland) Act 2015

Localities: comparison of outcomes

26.Section 9(1) and (3) requires that each community planning partnership must divide its area into smaller localities and identify those localities where persons are experiencing significantly poorer outcomes than those experienced elsewhere in the area of the community planning partnership or those experienced generally by persons in Scotland. Community planning partnerships in carrying out this duty must take account of the needs and circumstances of persons residing in its area (subsection (4)). This section confers a power on the Scottish Ministers to make regulations specifying areas of a type or description which can be localities, subject to any conditions specified in the regulations (subsection (5)). Separately it also confers on the Scottish Ministers a power to make regulations specifying that localities in the area of a local authority must each be of the same type or description (subsection (6)).
