The Outer Hebrides Community Planning Partnership is currently reviewing its SOA, and as required under the Community Empowerment (Scotland) Act is developing a Local Outcome Improvement Plan (LOIP) for the Outer Hebrides, and Locality Plans for the areas of Stornoway West and Benbecula and North Uist. It is anticipated these plans will be published by Autumn 2017.


How Good is Your Community?

The OHCPP has set out a survey to find out what you think of the area in which you live. What are the facilities like? Do you feel included in your community and how could the organisations of the Outer Hebrides improve your experience?

Initial results and more detailed findings are in the reports below

The results from this survey will be used by all partner organisations to identify priorities for action for the next 10 years.

Congratulations to the winner of our £50 coop gift card draw and thank you to everyone who has particpated in the survey.


OHCPP Board Meetings

The next meeting of the OHCPP Board is 31 May 2017 and was due to take place in Barra, however in light of recent tragic events affecting the Barra community, the meeting of the CPP Board will be hosted from Stornoway. Video conferencing will be available from Uist and Barra.

It is intended that the November 2017 meeting take place in Barra with the normal attendant community engagement.

Papers for the meeting are available here.  Members of the public are welcome to attend.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the family and friends of Laura Macintyre and Eilidh Macleod, and with all those affected.
