Liverpool has detailed the Combined Authority’s activities and achievements generated since the implementation of the three-year Corporate Plan which was published in July 2021.

 

The Annual Review 2021/22 review looks towards the future and details plans on how to support priority areas such as: A Fairer City Region, A Stronger City Region, A Cleaner City Region, A Connected City Region, and A Vibrant City Region. There port follows on from the turbulent pandemic years and how Liverpool plans to reinvest in the city region.

“The decisions we’ve taken have helped to transform people’s lives now and opportunities in the future.”

Plans to make Liverpool fairer first start by stating it’s hopes in becoming recognised as leaders in social innovation, becoming one of the most inclusive economies in the world and improving the lives of its 1.6 million residents is at the heart of this scheme. Already to support this endeavour, the city has seen a£9.4 million expansion of Be More, an apprenticeship website that has provided£4.5 million in training grants for employers, which is set to be distributed by the end of the year. The goal is to help 1,500 employers train 10,000 people with £2 million allocated to fill immediate skills gaps such as leadership, management, hospitality, tourism and cross-border trade regulations.

Steve Rotheram, Liverpool City Region’s Mayor, has commented, At every turn on that journey, our residents have been at the heart of the choices we’ve made. In such turbulent times, it’s vital we create opportunities for residents to reach their potential and lead healthy, happy and fulfilled lives.”

The plan to support residents follows through to development of Paddington Village, a £1bnscheme which was approved in hopes to create 870 new jobs alongside a boost of£58 million to the local economy. The development has now been renamed The Spine, which supports an expanding Knowledge Quarter and being home to the Royal College of Physicians.

The guide continues to ultimately provide reasoning on why Liverpool is becoming a pillar of the north. From plans to commit 1% of the Combined Authority’s budget of £30million on culture to continued construction on a new £80 million station, including bus and Active Travel facilities, and trialling battery powered trains for the first time, Liverpool is charging ahead in becoming an innovation leader.
