 A MAP OF INDEPENDENT ADVOCACY ACROSS SCOTLAND 2003-2004: page 14   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
The recent decision of North Lanarkshire Council to jointly fund with NHS Lanarkshire an advocacy development worker post, to co-ordinate the advocacy planning process within its boundaries, has drawn into sharp focus the widely differing approaches of the two local authorities with regard to advocacy.
South Lanarkshire Council felt it unnecessary to establish such a post at this stage, preferring instead to invest in direct service provision, as its officers felt the planning and commissioning of advocacy could be exercised sufficiently through the existing statutory mechanisms, as work had already been undertaken on scoping the needs for the service.
Finally, the commitment of Lanarkshire NHS Board and North Lanarkshire Council to fund a development worker, to identify unmet need, co-ordinate the planning of advocacy, and to support the advocacy forum in North Lanarkshire, is an exciting development, which is likely to provide useful learning for other areas.

 Comments on the scoping of the RCEP's Environmental Planning Study
South Lanarkshire Council, in common with bodies such as the Scottish Society of Directors of Planning and the RPTI in Scotland, suggested in their consultation response that a more integrated planning system is required, which would bring together land use planning, social and economic policy and environmental planning under one umbrella.
At the local level, South Lanarkshire Council has also sought to ensure that Environmental agencies are involved in all stages of the local planning process (including the preparation of a Council-wide Minerals Subject Plan).
Hence, for South Lanarkshire, the land use planning system would consist of the Scottish Framework, an Area framework and, in the medium term, 6 Local Development Plans (including the Minerals Subject Plan).
