Local Authorities, Scottish Fire & Rescue Service, Scottish Ambulance Service and NHS, to develop and implement future Divisional Estate Plans. These plans will ensure that co-location and collaboration with partners, and the wellbeing of our officers, staff and communities are at the forefront of our future planning and prioritisation.
