Plans and reports
This section of our website contains some of the plans and reports that help guide the council's main priorities.
The Council Plan 2017-22 sets out our ambitions during the five year period and highlights 11 priorities essential to help us reach these goals.
We have plans that we develop and agree in partnership with other organisations.
Local Outcomes Improvement Plan (LOIP)
We are part of the Aberdeenshire Community Planning Partnership (CPP), a group of partners that work with communities to improve services. The CPP has agreed three priorities for its Local Outcomes Improvement Plan 2017-27:
- Changing Aberdeenshire’s relationship with alcohol
- Reducing child poverty
- Connected and cohesive communities
It sets out how the partners will tackle inequalities and complex issues in the area. Developing the Plan is a requirement of the Community Empowerment (Scotland) Act 2015.
CPP Locality Plans
Along with the duty to prepare a LOIP, Community Planning Partnerships must develop at least one Locality Plan within their area in order to tackle inequalities. Partners have agreed to develop these plans for Peterhead, Fraserburgh, Banff and Macduff. They will take account of existing work in those towns and promote better coordination where required, and identify any gaps or issues that need to be addressed.
Local Community Plans
Each of the six areas has produced a Local Community Plan for a 3 year period. These will be updated on a regular basis and can be found on the Aberdeenshire Community Planning Partnership website.
The council has a Corporate Risk Register and Directorate Risk Registers:
Our Corporate Asset Management Plan has been developed in line with 'A Guide to Asset Management and Capital Planning in Local Authorities' published by CIPFA. This overreaching document summarises services asset based strategies which inform our Corporate Asset Management Plan 2015 - 2020 (pdf 3.29MB).
