A fairer, stronger, cleaner, connected vibrant city region where no one is left behind.
Our Annual Review for 2021/22 sets out the Combined Authority’s activities and achievements since our three-year Corporate Plan was published in July last year.
From large-scale regeneration projects to new trains, adult education, skills training, infrastructure, equalities, tackling the climate crisis and Bafta awards, the Combined Authority kept the city region moving and delivered opportunity and success over the last year.
And with the help of partners, longer term investments such as Shakespeare North Playhouse also came to fruition.
Activity was guided by the Corporate Plan’s key themes of creating a fairer, stronger, cleaner, connected and vibrant city region – with no-one left behind.
Writing of his ambition and optimism for Liverpool City Region’s future, Mayor Steve Rotheram says: “Whilst the past year has undeniably been one of the most significant periods in our region’s long and storied history, I’m incredibly proud of what we have achieved.
“Tasked with rebuilding our economy in the aftermath of an unprecedented global pandemic, the decisions we’ve taken over the last 12 months have put our region well on the road to recovery.
“At every turn on that journey, our residents have been at the heart of the choices we’ve made. In such turbulent times, it’s vital we create opportunities for residents to reach their potential and lead healthy, happy and fulfilled lives.
“The decisions we’ve taken have helped to transform people’s lives now and opportunities in the future.
“That work has already led to the creation of 10,000 jobs and 7,000 apprenticeships for local people. But I still want to do much, much more.”
