Our Role in Community Planning

Community Planning is the process by which the public services in each local authority area are planned and provided. A number of public sector organisations-including HITRANS-are statutory partners in Community Planning.

Single Outcome Agreements

Single Outcome Agreements are the means by which Community Planning Partnerships agree strategic priorities for their area. The priorities are set out in the form of outcomes. These outcomes are linked to Scottish Government's 15 National Outcomes which describe what Scottish Government wants to achieve over the long term.



HITRANS' role is to support the Community Planning Partners in developing transport in order to help achieve the National Outcomes. Of the 15 National Outcomes, 12 can be advanced through delivering the regional transport strategy. Therefore, transport-and HITRANS-have a key role in the Community Planning process.
