Single Outcome Agreement

The Local Government in Scotland Act (2003) places a duty on Local Authorities to initiate, maintain and facilitate the Community Planning process. Glasgow's Community Planning Partnership (CPP) consists of Glasgow City Council, NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde, Police Scotland, Scottish Fire and Rescue, Glasgow Housing Association and the Glasgow Chamber of Commerce. Through representation on the CPP Strategic Board, the Executive Group and various working groups, the council plays a key role in strategy and policy development for the Community Planning.


In July 2008 each council in Scotland, in conjunction with local Community Planning Partners developed a Single Outcome Agreement (SOA). that set out the planned improvements for the local area and how these contributed to the 15 national outcomes set by the Scottish Government (more information on the national outcomes can be found on the Scotland Performs website).


The introduction of the SOA was linked to a reduction in funding restrictions placed on Community Planning Partnerships by the Scottish Government, allowing greater flexibility to target resources according to local priorities and need.

In 2009, the Community Planning Partnership formalised a second version of the agreement, which reconfirmed the 24 local outcomes planned for the city through 2010/11. Each year the council reports on the progress of the outcomes set out in the Single Outcome Agreement.
