Prior to the event, speaker Tony Reeves, Chief Executive, Liverpool City Council, said:

“The Covid-19 lockdown has left cities like Liverpool with the option of doing two things – wait for events to unfold or take action. Liverpool has acted – we’ve submitted a detailed recovery plan to Government and at the same time established a City Plan.

“The £1.4bn recovery plan is fully costed and identifies key projects that build on the success of our knowledge, digital and visitor economies and focuses the city’s energy on how we create new skills, new homes and new jobs. The City Plan complements this financial stimulus by setting out how we will create greater equality and opportunity in everything we do, from health to wealth, education and employment.

“The City Plan will help unify public services in Liverpool and will help maximise the strengths and identify the needs of individuals and neighbourhoods. Early help and prevention will be central, and communities will be increasingly empowered to make decisions and influence things which matter and are of value to them. The sheer volume of partners involved across both public and private sectors to deliver both the recovery and the City Plan underlines our commitment to seize what is quite simply a once in a lifetime opportunity to reset Liverpool.”
