CPP Structure & Remit


Glasgow’s Community Planning Partnership (CPP) has been working to a new structure since 1 April 2013. At a citywide level there is a Strategic Board, an Executive Group and a Safe Glasgow group. There are then three Sector partnerships, for the North East, North West and South. Each sector also has an Area Senior Officers Group.  At a more local level there are 21 Area Partnerships.

The Scottish Government website describes Community Planning Partnerships as ‘a process which helps public agencies to work together with the community to plan and deliver better services which make a real difference to people’s lives.’

Partners work within the framework of the Local Government in Scotland Act 2003.


Glasgow’s Community Planning Partnership is made up of:

  • Elected Members,
  • Glasgow Chamber of Commerce;
  • Glasgow City Council;
  • Glasgow Housing Association;
  • Job Centre Plus;
  • NHS GCC Community Health Partnership;
  • Police Scotland;
  • Scottish Fire and Rescue;
  • Scottish Government;
  • Scottish Enterprise;
  • Skills Development Scotland;
  • Third Sector Forum.

The Sector Partnerships also include community residents and representatives from further education colleges and local housing associations.

Area Partnerships are made up of elected members, community residents, the Third Sector, Scottish Police Service, Scottish Fire and Rescue and NHS GCC Community Health Partnership.
