Local Action Partnerships is one of many way for communities to get involved in local decision making.
In Perth and Kinross the seven Community Planning Partnership localities are:
- Perth City
- Almond and Earn
- Strathearn and Strathallan
- Eastern Perthshire
These localities each have an Action Partnership made up of elected members, communities, and public services.
