Response, recovery and renewal

8:53am - 30 July 2020

A plan on how North Somerset Council is working to minimise the harm caused by the coronavirus pandemic and promote recovery from it was discussed at yesterday's meeting of the council's Executive.

The Response, Recovery and Renewal document will sit alongside the council's corporate plan - the key strategic document setting out what the council aims to achieve for local people and the area over the medium-term - by 2023. 

Cllr Don Davies, Leader of North Somerset Council, said: "Coronavirus has affected all our lives, curtailed the freedoms we take for granted, and how we conduct ourselves when we are out and about.

"What  hasn’t changed is our vision of an open fairer, greener North Somerset. We will continue to strive to deliver the agenda set out in our corporate plan, but we recognise that some things will now be harder to deliver and that there are new things we need to do to respond to the pandemic. 

"This short document to complement the corporate plan  sets out how we will minimise harm and promote recovery and renewal. This is not the typical lengthy council strategy but a live document which we will be able to update rapidly as the situation develops."

The report the Executive considered is on the council's website at
