    Abstract

    This article explores the ways in which the inherited fragmentation of public services and associated delivery arrangements are being addressed in Scotland. Specifically, the article considers the modernization of an established part of local governance - land use planning, and a novel articulation of modernization through community planning. There are important differences between them, yet they share common interests in securing the integration of service. Through a synthesis of research evidence, emerging policy documentation and consultation responses, we address three questions. First, is the emphasis on integration in both land use planning and community planning helping to address the fragmented state? Second, how are land use planning and community planning adapting to local circumstances? Third, what is the nature of the relationship between these different attempts to plan for local communities? The article considers to what extent this turn to integration within and between land use planning and community planning is constructive.
