What is the Local Economic Recovery Strategy

The Local Economic Recovery Strategy lays out the specific ways that the Combined Authority, with their Local Authority partners and local business groups, are helping the region's economy recover and renew following Covid-19.

"All our local collaborators share a steadfast drive to make things happen and do things a new and different way, that is more collaborative and impactful than ever before."

Since March, employers and employees have had to encounter unforeseen challenges and we have seen incomparable levels of adaptability and resilience.  As the economy reopens in the weeks and months ahead, employers will need to continue to meet a series of challenges and obstacles head-on to ensure survival before they can consider resuming on a new and very different journey of growth. 

Many employers in our region have also been directly involved in the national and international fight against the disease, from the global development and testing of vaccines, to uncovering effective medical treatments, through to the design and engineering of new ventilators for hospitals. In a time of crisis, this has highlighted the importance of innovation to our own economies and of the UK.

We want your views on this final draft. We would be hugely if you could download the strategy and fill in a short survey about your current situation and your thoughts about the survey itself by Friday 25th September.

This strategy has been a collaborative process strengthened by significant co-ownership and co-creation alongside our Local Authorities and Local Business groups, and comprehensive and broader business community, education and public consultation. The strategy is further underpinned by a common understanding that to lead the region to economic recovery, behaviours will also need to change in order to support the interventions proposed.
