Planning for COVID-19 economic recovery

How are local areas responding? 

15 Jul 2020
In the wake of recent government policy and funding announcements designed to fuel economic recovery across the UK, we take the opportunity to examine how local places are developing their own plans to mitigate the short term implications and guide longer term economic restoration.

Lichfields carried out a survey of local authorities and Local Enterprise Partnerships (LEPs) across the country in June to explore how different areas are responding to the economic impacts of COVID-19 and to gather local views on prospects and priorities for economic recovery over the coming months. Key findings from our research are summarised in this Insight focus.
