Community planning officials constitute one of the most significant groups of local public servants in Scotland today. They work across a broad range of key policy areas and are at the forefront of advancing the agenda laid out by the Christie Commission on the Future Delivery of Public Services and legislation such as the Community Empowerment (Scotland) Act. This Survey report and Executive Summary present the findings of the first survey of community planning officials (managers and officers) conducted in Scotland. Over the years improving community planning partnerships (CPPs) has often meant reforming structures and procedures; the ‘hardware’, to use a computing metaphor. Getting that right is crucial but policy, governance and public service successes often hinge on the ‘software’: relationships, mindsets, values and ways of working. Community planning officials (CPOs) operate at the heart of local governance. This survey sought to explore their views on issues related to both the ‘hardware’ and the ‘software’ of CPPs. A summary version of the report is available at http://whatworksscotland.ac.uk/publications/community-planning-officials-survey-everyday-work-of-local-participatory-governance/ The report was launched at a What Works Scotland webinar delivered by Dr Oliver Escobar.
