Our Plan for Prosperity sets out a long-term vision for transforming together to deliver a Fairer, Stronger, Cleaner Liverpool City Region.
It provides a framework for our future priorities and investment decisions, and for our conversations with Government about how we work together, through devolution, to maximise prosperity for all people and communities.
The Plan for Prosperity articulates how we will build on our distinctive economic strengths, tackle our challenges, and develop transformational policies to unlock growth and be a catalyst for the development of a clean and inclusive economy.
Underpinned by evidence, the plan remains true to the tenets of our draft Local Industrial Strategy and the extensive engagement that underpinned it. It adapts to the changed socio-economic landscape that has followed the pandemic and reflects key changes within national policy, creating a common narrative on how we intend to position ourselves both nationally and globally to maximise our contribution to the UK’s economic prosperity.
The Prosperity we talk about within our plan flows from our Fairer, Stronger, Cleaner vision set out in our Corporate Plan. It is wider than traditional measures of economic growth – a blend of improving personal health, wealth and opportunity; creating thriving neighbourhoods and places; successful and productive businesses that create good quality employment; and a healthy and protected natural environment.
Taken together, the realisation of our opportunities and the range of priorities and actions set out in the plan will support the City Region in delivering transformational change that will enhance our resilience, creating an economy that works for all people and places, and ultimately delivers shared prosperity.
