Community Plan Review 2020-21

Over the last year, colleagues from across our Community Planning Partnership have been engaging in the second three yearly review of our Community Plan 2015-2030. The review has been undertaken within the context of the Covid-19 pandemic, with a clear focus on those areas where we must redouble our efforts to ensure the greatest impact on tackling inequality

The outcomes of the review are reflected in a Community Plan Review Supplement which articulates the current context, along with the challenges and opportunities that have emerged. As we look to the next three years, the supplement highlights two strategic priorities – the Ayrshire Growth Deal and Caring for Ayrshire.

Together these represent an unprecedented level of investment and transformation in the region and we will want to maximise their impact and benefit for local communities across East Ayrshire. We have also taken the opportunity to review and update our thematic Delivery Plans – Economy and SkillsSafer Communities and Wellbeing.

The Community Planning Partnership Board endorsed all of the recommendations arising from the review, including the new Strategic Priorities, at its meeting of 10 June 2021. East Ayrshire Council also agreed, at its own meeting on 24 June 2021, to adopt these shared strategic priorities for the next three years.

Both the CPP Board and Council have also approved our new Local Outcomes Improvement Plan for 2021-24, which will allow us to measure and report on the future performance of our partnership. The LOIP, and related suite of performance information which is being developed, will allow us to demonstrate the impact of our partnership work on the priorities which have been identified with our communities and wider stakeholders over the last year.

Our focus now turns to driving forward the work that has been identified in our thematic Delivery Plans, work which will continue to evolve in response to the future challenges ahead. Our annual performance engagement event in September 2021 will provide a further opportunity to reflect on the emerging medium to longer term impacts of the Covid-19 pandemic on our communities, and how we can continue to work together to support recovery and renewal across East Ayrshire in the years ahead.
