A second phase of the ‘Regional Approaches to Maximising Inclusive Economic Growth: Local Authorities’ Perspective’ work has now been published.
This involved further engagement with a sample of local authorities, as well as workshops which all councils were invited to. This second phase of work fleshed out further detail and proposals for taking forward the various ‘action areas’ set out within the initial report.
This follow-up work was also overseen by a Steering Group comprising the Improvement Service, COSLA, SOLACE and SLAED.
The Improvement Service (IS) is the national improvement organisation for local government in Scotland.
Our purpose is to help councils and their partners to improve the health, quality of life and opportunities of all people in Scotland through community leadership, strong local governance and the delivery of high quality, efficient local services.
Through a series of principles, the IS works to promote improvement in local government and among its partners to support them improve outcomes and reduce the outcome gaps within populations and within areas.
The IS delivers a range of products and services that support CPPs to build their capacity to deliver the public service reform agenda.
The IS has a non-partisan role to support all elected members in Scotland.
The Improvement Services produces a series of newsletters on a range of subjects, including myaccount, elected members, tellmescotland as well as the main IS newsletter. Subscribe on this page.
