In July 2020, our Elected Members endorsed our COVID-19 Recovery Framework, which mapped out the innovative way we planned to support our community to take the lead in recovery from the impacts of the global pandemic.
Twelve months on, we are reflecting on the achievements of this past year, and the ways in which our community, Elected Members and staff have worked together towards recovery.
The 45 projects that form our framework touch on all areas of community life including support services for individuals and our most vulnerable residents, business support programs, placemaking initiatives and environment projects.
Throughout this work we have been inspired to see how many sections of our community acted quickly to adapt to the changes that we saw unfold during 2020.
