Have Your Say!

Renfrewshire Community Planning Partnership (RCPP) invite everyone to attend Community Level Governance:  HAVE YOUR SAY! Consultation events in March.  

DROP-IN SESSION on 15th March in the McKillop in Lochwinnoch - so don't miss out, read on for more details, how to book and all venue dates below.


Community Level Governance is about the formal structures by which local communities engage with the Council and other public services. Currently in Renfrewshire, this is done through a structure of committees called ‘Local Area Committees’ (or ‘LACs’) which were established as formal committees of the Council in 2007.

We have already done some engagement with people as part of our review of current arrangements and developed these proposals from that input. The proposals cover five themes function; membership; boundaries; meetings; grants.
