About this Event

Planning

An introduction to Planning Scotland Act 2019. An informal conversation about key changes to planning legislation.

MAPPA (Multi-Agency Public Protection Arrangements)

The MAPPA input will look at how the MAPPA arrangements have been used to manager registered sex offenders since 2007 and high risk violent offenders since 2017. The input will look at the role of Police Scotland, Criminal Justice Social Work, Health and other agencies in working together to reduce risk.

Community Justice

Intended to give participants a sense of what the approach means – basically bringing different agencies, communities and service users together to look at how we reduce offending and reoffending in our communities. Community Justice allows for local solutions to local problems but it is still developing having been introduced in 2017. The approach recognises that no one agency can reduce offending and reoffending and that partners need to work together to have an impact.

Running your Community Council

A discussion and sharing of information including the Midlothian Scheme for Community Councils and the Code of Conduct.

Complaints Procedure

A draft plan has been circulated to Community Councils. This discussion will inform a policy that intends to be helpful to community members and their community council representatives.
