Resurgam: Local Economic Plan for Recovery – Plymouth City Council
Posted on 6th October, 2020
Resurgam is the city’s response to the lockdown and its economic impact, developed in collaboration with local business.
Plymouth is ranked as the 64th most deprived local authority out of 317 Local Authority districts (2019 Index of Multiple Deprivation). For people in some of the most deprived wards, Covid-19 places them in an increasingly uncertain and precarious financial context which will only worsen already prevalent inequality within the city. The city’s Resurgam programme was announced in May in response to the lockdown and its economic impact. Developed in collaboration with local business, its local economic recovery plan aims to deliver a more equal, sustainable and prosperous city through protecting jobs and helping residents.
