Decision Maker: Liverpool City Region Combined Authority
Decision status: Recommendations Approved
Is Key decision?: Yes
Is subject to call in?: Yes
The Economic Recovery Plan sets out the Liverpool City Region’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The plan will play a central role in the City Region’s economic recovery by providing a basis on which to engage with Government on recovery matters, and an agreed local framework to guide, shape and inform recovery focused activities.
The LCR Combined Authority is asked to consider the post COVID-19 Economic Recovery Plan for the Liverpool City Region. The plan sets out signficant investment opportunities across the City Region to respond to the negative impacts of the pandemic and provide stimulus to the local economy. Due to the City Region wide transformational opportunities and level of investment presented to Government, approval of the plan as a framework for recovery is considered a key decision.
The LCR Combined Authority resolved that:-
(i) the Plan set out at Appendix 1 be noted;
(ii) the need to regularly update the plan to reflect government’s own recovery planning and the evolving course of the pandemic be noted; and
(iii) the actions already underway to progress actions within the plan be endorsed.
