GEGJC (Gloucestershire Economic Growth Joint Committee) was considered a key stakeholder in the production of the Covid Economic Recovery Plan due to the locality response prepared across the districts. This Committee received regular updates in order to clarify the respective roles across the county. The process started with gap analysis across each of the locality recovery plans and supporting the development of the County Council plan.

Chief Executives across the District Councils were engaged at an early stage to ensure clarity of roles across the recovery plans. The GFirst LEP Deputy Chief Executive was also consulted to ensure any removal of overlap or duplication in reports.
The Leader, the Cabinet Member for Economy, Education and Skills as well as the Cabinet Member for Environment and Planning were all interviewed as part of the creation of this plan. This consultation ensured the overall strategic direction of the plan met the future ambitions of the County Council

Planned Dates: Implementation can begin on approval.
