Neighbourhood Partnership Performance
Neighbourhood Partnerships (NPs) seek
to involve the wider community by regularly reporting their
activities in a clear and accessible way. Regular monitoring
different Partnership activity across the City is a key way to
increase confidence in partnership working. Showing where things
are successful as well as where they could be improved also helps
to encourage future participation from local people.
Across the City NPs have agreed a set of principles that all
Partnerships will promote when reporting their progress both
internally and externally.
These principles of performance reporting are set out in the
Neighbourhood Partnership Performance Framework.
Attached to this there are
guidance notes that give
examples as well as explaining key concepts, and a
glossary that defines the key terms.
Local Community Plans run from 2014 to 2017
and Framework will also be reviewed at the end of this period.
Each priority the NP has agreed to deliver has an action plan.
These plans details what work the NP is undertaking, who is leading
on specific projects, and when these are to be completed.
Progress on the delivery of the local community plans
is reported regularly to each NP board. Often this is done by
circulating up to date action plans or the lead partner for a piece
of work giving a verbal report. In addition, NPs will consider
progress against the priorities on an annual basis.
Each NP also reports back to its partners through an annual
scorecard. This scorecard forms part of a report that details
partnership working across the City and details NP progress towards
In the City of Edinburgh Council these scorecards are reported
Communities and Neighbourhoods Committee.
