Neighbourhood Partnerships are made up of councillors, public agencies, community representatives, Police, NHS Lothian and the voluntary sector. The key focus of the Partnerships is to address issues that affect local quality of life.\\n\\nThe Partnerships are able to make recommendations and provide guidance and direction to the Council and partner organisations. They’ll also take on decisions relating to environment, open space and traffic management; they’ll be responsible for local consultation; they’ll award small community grants for local projects, and they’ll be able to inform the development of city strategies – making sure they reflect local needs and priorities.
Natural neighbourhoods are neighbourhood definitions and boundaries created during a consultation with Edinburgh residents. Natural neighbourhood boundaries were created in 2004 as part of a review of ward boundaries. The city has changed much since then, the population has increased, new neighbourhoods have appeared and demolition has taken place in other areas so the 2014 consultation has updated these boundaries. The boundaries will be used by the Council and its partners to plan services, consultations and inform policy and strategy development.
Catchment areas of all mainstream schools within the Dundee City Council administrative boundary. Catchments are available for Primary and Secondary, Denominational and Nondenominational schools. Catchment areas are used to help place children resident in that area into their catchment school. Children are allocated Priority 1 status for their catchment school. Other children not resident in that catchment area are required to make a placing request for entry into that school. Catchments updated to reflect changes outlined in Education Committee reports 175-2015, 177-2015 and 176-2015 which come into effect in 2016.
