Cumbria’s Strategic Recovery Coordination Group (SRCG) has launched an online public consultation to gather feedback on the Draft Recovery Strategy for Cumbria.
The SRCG is a partnership of organisations and authorities including the county council, district councils, Cumbria Police, NHS, Cumbria Local Enterprise Partnership, Cumbria Council for Voluntary Service, Cumbria Community Foundation, Lake District National Park, Yorkshire Dales National Park, and others.
Planning for the future is essential to a successful recovery for local residents, businesses, communities and tourists. To ensure there is a robust recovery framework in place, Cumbria SRCG has developed a draft recovery strategy document, and is now seeking the views of local people to help inform the final version, which will be published in the Summer.
It is important to gather as many views as possible to ensure the strategy reflects what is needed for Cumbria’s residents and businesses, and that a wide range of feedback can be considered.
The strategy has been developed by an extensive range of partners across Cumbria, and further information about the SRCG, as well as links to the draft recovery strategy document, and the online survey, can be found at www.cumbriarecovery.org
To have your say complete the survey online here. The closing date for feedback is 25 April 2021.
