LCR LISTENS: Our Recovery
Steve Rotheram, Metro Mayor of the Liverpool City Region, has launched a public engagement exercise to listen to local people’s priorities and to help shape the Liverpool City Region’s ambitious plans for economic recovery.
The Liverpool City Region Combined Authority is developing an economic recovery plan for the whole city region that will be submitted to central government later this month.
The plan builds on the city region’s Local Industrial Strategy, which was the subject of extensive public engagement through the Metro Mayor’s “#LCRListens” scheme, which brought in a new approach to involving local residents in shaping the future of the city region.
Local residents will now be invited to take part in an online #LCRListens survey, giving local people the opportunity to comment on key elements of the draft economic recovery plan.
Opportunities to build back better:
The pandemic has been hugely disruptive and has led to a heart-breaking loss of life but it has also provided an opportunity to reflect on the kind of lives and society we want to have in the future.
The impact of the pandemic on businesses is severe. We must support our businesses to survive, adapt, and grow.
The health, economic, and social consequences of Covid-19 are having a profound impact on people’s lives. We must support people who have been negatively impacted by the pandemic, by job losses, or reduced health and wellbeing.
Lockdown has forced us all to spend more time at home, live more locally, and practice social distancing. It has demonstrated the need to improve the quality of the homes we live in, the local amenities we access, and the importance of good design for the places where we live.
Investing in infrastructure can provide a short-term boost to the economy, and build what we need for long-term growth.
We are committed to creating an environmentally responsible economy, with net zero carbon emissions by 2040. We must maintain the positive effect lockdown has had on our environment.
