Renfrewshire Council

How our plans fit together

This Council Plan is one of three important sets of documents that, taken together, describe what the Council is trying to achieve over the coming years and how it is going to do this. A short description of each of these three documents is provided below so you can identify where best to look for information.

The Council Plan is produced following the election of a new Council Administration. It summarises the Council's priority objectives for the following four years and the actions it will take to deliver these objectives.

This Council plan covers the period of the majority Labour Administration formed after the 2012 election. It will be replaced by a new Council plan prepared to reflect the priorities of the Administration that will be formed after the Council election in May 2017.

The Community Plan summarises the priorities for Renfrewshire that the Council and its community planning partners (the other public bodies and third sector organisations that deliver services within Renfrewshire) have identified and agreed that can best be achieved by working closely together. It also identifies how the Council and its Community Planning Partners will support the Scottish Government achieve its strategic objectives.

These objectives, and the joint actions the partners have agreed to take to achieve them, are set out in Renfrewshire's Single Outcome Agreement document which is submitted to the Scottish Government for approval.

The Community Plan covers a longer period of time than the Council Plan and the current plan runs for ten years from 2013 to 2023. It is updated on a regular basis to reflect the progress being made and changes across Renfrewshire's communities, economy and environment.

Service plans detail the activity that each of the five Council Services will be undertaking to contribute to the successful delivery of the Council Plan and the Community Plan. These plans also identify the activity that each Service will be carrying out to improve the services they provide and make them more efficient.

From April 2016, there will be a separate for the new Renfrewshire Health and Social Care Partnership, which will provide adult social care and community based Health Care Services across Renfrewshire. There is also Renfrewshire Leisure's business plan which provides details on how leisure services in the area will be delivered.
