This series of notebooks provides information, guidance and support to Community Planning Partnership (CPP) Board members.
Developed by the Improvement Service in consultation with CPPs, the notebooks are designed to meet the varied needs and roles of different CPP Board members. They are likely to be of most use to Board members who are new to the role rather than those with more experience.
Notebook 1: Overview of Community Planning
The first notebook will help you understand the changing context within which CPPs are operating, the expectations for community planning and what that means for CPP Board members.
Notebook 2: How to be an Effective Board and Board Member
This provides an overview of the roles and responsibilities of CPP Boards and Board members and the skills and behaviours required. It also describes the support available to help CPPs meet these duties.
Checklist for CPP Board Members
This checklist provides an aide memoire of the key points covered in the two notebooks.
The notebooks may also be useful background information for those whose work contributes to the achievement of the CPP’s priorities, particularly those who are part of thematic and/or neighbourhood community planning groups, as well as anyone who requires to develop an understanding of the strategic landscape within which CPPs operate.
