I am honoured to have been appointed Vice-Chair of this newly created Board, supporting the Chair, Derbyshire County Council (DCC) Leader Barry Lewis.
The Derbyshire Economic Recovery Board has been established at the initiative of DCC to quickly establish a county-wide strategy and coordination for the economic recovery needed following the damage done to business sustainability by the necessary Government restrictions required to fight the Coronavirus Pandemic.
Key to the success of this Board will be obtaining good business input on where support is needed. I would welcome any business input, particularly from SMEs, micro-businesses and the self-employed. Work is currently progressing in 5 work-streams: Economic Development and Place, Highways, Travel Transport and Infrastructure, Visitor Economy, Employment and Skills.
