Economic recovery plan
COVID-19 Economic Recovery Plan
We are witnessing very challenging times; the economic and social effects of the Covid-19 outbreak and the ensuing lockdown have been widespread, impacting on the wellbeing of all our citizens. The City Council has led on the public health response locally and already done a great deal to help businesses and communities weather the storm.
Our COVID-19 Economic Recovery Plan sets out plans for the longer-term recovery of the local economy. The Recovery Plan summarise the City Council’s contribution to supporting the economy of the city as it recovers from the COVID-19 crisis and adapts to changing conditions. We appreciate the situation is fluid and with changing restrictions it is always difficult to predict future direction, however the City Council’s priorities remain firm. The City Council’s overall priorities for the recovery from COVID-19 are:
- Creating a more inclusive economy and tackling the inequalities and injustices highlighted by the crisis;
- Taking more radical action to achieve zero carbon and a green and sustainable city;
- Strengthening our public services and creating new services to address needs; and
- Building the strength and resilience of our communities, based on the positive response to the crisis.
Our draft Recovery Plan addresses the challenges and offers priorities and future direction on how we tackle these difficult issues. We cannot do this alone however, and we are asking for your input to help shape our plans for the recovery.
From Monday 5 October until Monday 16 November 2020 the city council would like to hear your views on the Covid-19 Economic Recovery Plan.
Following the end of the consultation period, the draft Recovery Plan will be amended to take into account the representations received.
