Action planning at a local level is a tried and tested way to tackle issues faced by communities. Local people know the issues their communities face and often know the best solutions too. The Local Action Plans were produced by Local Action Partnerships to address inequality issues drawing on  evidence from the Kinross-shire, Almond and Earn Story of Place, which contains a wealth of statistical information; information about community assets and other consultations with the community; as well as the local knowledge brought by members of the Action Partnership.
