Community Planning Uncovered

Do you know your LOIP from your LIP, your Local Community Planning Partnership from your Neighbourhood Network? The world of Community Planning can seem confusing and inaccessible, however help is at hand!

The Equality and Rights Network (EaRN) are pleased to be hosting a workshop on the new Community Planning structure in Edinburgh. Come along and hear from Deputy Council Leader, and member of the EPB, Councillor Cammy Day, council officers and third sector representatives on:

  • the new structure;
  • the equalities impact of the changes; and
  • how third sector organisations and individuals can best use the community planning tools to influence decision making in the city.

As well as hearing from our speakers there will be time for group discussion and a chance for you to ask questions.

The workshop will take place on Tuesday 25 June from 9.30am-12pm at Norton Park Conference Centre.
