The Leader, Councillor Evans OBE introduced the report on Strategic Objectives for Plymouth City Council (Covid-19). Giles Perritt, Assistant Chief Executive was in support. This was an urgent decision before Cabinet given that national emergency planning best practice is to identify recovery and renewal priorities as soon as practicable during the response phase to a major incident. Given the dynamic nature of the Covid-19 pandemic, the earliest opportunity has been taken to agree and publish the recovery and renewal framework to enable responses to national and local policy changes to be appropriately guided.


Following a discussion Cabinet agreed:


1.    To note the challenges and opportunities at section (3) of the accompanying report that the city has faced since the beginning of the Covid-19 outbreak;

2.    To note the key assumptions and adopt the key principles at section (3) of the accompanying report to guide decision making

3.    Early recovery and renewal priorities and objectives at section (4) of the accompanying report

4.    The terms of reference for the Reset Board
