10 What is the Relationship Between Localities and Community Planning?

10.1 Each Integration Authority will have two or more localities, which will contribute to its strategic commissioning plan. The Integration Authority will be a statutory community planning partner and therefore subject to duties placed on Community Planning Partnerships and partners by Part 2 of the Community Empowerment (Scotland) Bill.

10.2 Some locality arrangements already exist under community planning; it will be important that localities for integration build upon and take account of such arrangements, and create effective relationships between CPPs and Integration Authorities that health achieve the national health and wellbeing outcomes.
