This document is our route-map for working on how the County will recover socially and economically in the coming months. The route-map:
Since March 2020, the Covid pandemic has had profound impacts on individuals, families, communities and businesses in every part of Northumberland. We shared the frustration of residents and businesses as restrictions had to be ratcheted up in response to the spread of the virus. Currently, we are still in this third National Lockdown although Government’s Roadmap sets out a pathway to recovery. Our priority is to work with Government, residents, partners and businesses to ensure we follow Government’s recovery roadmap and emerge with Covid infection rates much reduced, our vaccination programme on track and leading economic recovery.
This has undoubtedly been a year like no other but Government’s recovery roadmap, announced on 22 February provides a welcome measure of certainty for the coming months. As we move through the four steps of Government’s Roadmap, we are clear, as your Council, we will continue to deliver the services you need every day, supporting and protecting the people who need help and, doing all we can to help businesses survive, recover and thrive once again.
Unlike traditional council plans, our route-map will not be static or long-term. The fast-changing nature of Covid and its impacts demands a different approach. Instead, we will produce regular updates of this document and share these with you so you can see the latest picture and how we are adapting our response to changing circumstances.
What won’t change is our commitment to being here for all our communities throughout this challenging period and beyond.
Cllr Glen Sanderson Daljit Lally
Leader of Council Chief Executive
