The Deputy Chief Executive/Director of Corporate Services presented a report updating members on a number of additional support measures that were being developed across the Council to support local residents and businesses, as part of the Economic Recovery Plan.


The Leader commented that all three political groups were working together to bring about improvements in the local economy as demonstrated by the reductions in job seekers allowance (JSA) and claimants’ figures (appendix1) which now had the second best rate in the Liverpool City Region. He thanked Councillor Steve Foulkes, Leader of the  previous  Administration, and LSP partners, and stated that this report was a testimony to the commitment to assist economic recovery.


Resolved – That


(1)  the support measures developed thus far be noted; and


(2)  Officers be authorised to continue to develop effective responses supporting businesses and residents through the continuing uncertain economic conditions.
