Summary of economy recovery plans

The Centre for Progressive Policy has conducted an analysis of published local economic recovery plans on behalf of the Inclusive Growth Network. 

The Centre for Progressive Policy has produced a summary of economic recovery plans to support local policymakers with recovery planning and implementation.

This review can help inform your approach to recovery planning with an overview of the use of partnerships, citizen engagement, and measuring and monitoring. There are also helpful examples of policy intervention best practice:

  • Good work - using public procurement, business support, work pledges and charters, and targeted work with the foundational economy
  • Skills and employment - maximising the local impact of regional and national support, co-ordinating and repurposing local support, and targeting key sectors
  • Green recovery - driving investment in green jobs and green infrastructure
  • Health inequalities - applying a ‘health in all policies’ approach and empowering communities

As places across the UK continue to respond to the impacts of Covid-19, the Inclusive Growth Network will support members with their ongoing economic response to the pandemic alongside longer-term recovery planning.
