Former COSLA President Pat Watters is to chair a new national group which will oversee the ambitious development of community planning across Scotland - the process which brings together services provided by councils, the NHS, emergency services, and other public agencies.

The new national group will act as guardians of the overall Community Planning and Single Outcome Agreement (SOA) process, offering strategic leadership, and driving the process forward.

The national group will bring together all partners involved in the community planning process to help ensure that effective community planning is at the heart of Scotland's public service reform and oversee tasks such as the development of guidance and building skills and capacity to support improvement
