This briefing will examine the next steps for genuine and meaningful citizen participation to enhance services and outcomes.
Working with people and communities to improve outcomes
In September 2016, the revised National Standards for Community Engagement were launched building on the original 2005 standards, a growing range of practice and ongoing implementation of the Community Empowerment Act.
Co-production – the process of utilising all service stakeholders’ skills, lived and professional experience to develop better services – is the next rung on the participation ladder, so how can professionals work with people and communities to improve services and outcomes?
Attend this Holyrood briefing to examine the latest co-production developments and good practice.
During March, Wood Group plc will be bringing through Alyth the major components for the seven wind-turbines they are building up at Tullymurdoch.
The turbine blades and support towers are very large items, so there will be temporary traffic and parking restrictions along both sides of the B952 Airlie Street and Bamff Road from its junction with Isla Road to its junction with the Alyth Den Car Park entrance.
Wood Group says: “These restrictions will be in place from 1 March 2018 for a period of eight weeks. Pedestrian and emergency vehicular access to premises will be maintained throughout. We thank you for your patience over the last couple of months and apologise for any inconvenience caused.”
It seems that the Alyth Community Council, which has been in abeyance for quite some time, has now been resurrected. We have no further information at the moment, but we’ll try to keep you up to date with any more details as they come out.
