2014-2017 Local Community Plan
Plans are written as a summary of the main things local people want
to see changed or improved in their area.
The new Local Community Plan will run from 2014 to 2017. The new
LCP was approved by the Pentlands Partnership Board on 30th
September 2014 and can be found here. It was officially launched
at the end of October along with plans from the eleven other
Neighbourhood Partnerships in Edinburgh. The new Plan
follows on from the 2011-14 Plan which can be found here.
The Local Community Plans are updated to make sure they stay
relevant to the needs of communities. We intend to build on the
work that has already taken place in the Pentlands and include new
emerging issues for the community.
To help revise the Local Community Plan we asked local
people what they think the main issues are in their
What we did to consult
Over spring and into summer 2014 the Neighbourhood Partnership
team consulted across the community on what issues the new plan
should prioritise. We produced an online survey that local people
were encouraged to complete, with paper versions available on
request and at libraries. We focused on getting opinions from
specific groups such as young people, older peoples groups, and
minority communities. We consulted with the voluntary sector, and
tried to ensure the plan reflects the range of opinions that exist
across the Pentlands area of Edinburgh.
An executive summary of the process can be accessed here.
