Welcome to edition 30 of Community.
Yesterday at Full Council we agreed our Restart Renewal Recovery approach, built on our learning from the initial response period. We’re having a sharper focus on our council priorities too which can be simply defined as:
• Schools and learning
• Economy and business
• Inequalities and vulnerability
• Local communities.
The communities we serve are at the very centre of our restart, renewal and recovery work.
As a council, we’re committed to placebased working and community empowerment and this focus on working in partnership with our communities to plan, design and deliver services around people and place has been central to shaping our immediate response to lockdown. This is evident in how our communities have responded to the very real risk to life posed by the virus – and once again we thank you all.
We also thank you for your ongoing support as we continue our journey along the route map for moving out of lockdown.
