COVID Recovery Action Plan

Project
Havant Borough Council commissioned PSP to provide a Covid-19 Recovery Plan for the centres of Cowplain, Emsworth, Havant, Leigh Park, Mengham, Waterlooville and West Town.  PSP delivered support in asking for the views of local businesses to help shape the priority actions which will be recommended to the Council.  As well as supporting businesses to recover from the current pandemic, Havant Borough Council is committed to supporting the ongoing development and long-term sustainability of all of its centres and this work will inform key future activities to achieve this.  A key part of the project involved asking businesses about what they thought would result in improvements to the economic performance of each town, with the intention of improving overall trading conditions for all businesses.
 
Result
Following assessments, key recommendations were made on the immediate recovery and long-term sustainability of each place.  With over 300 surveys successfully completed over calls and through direct engagement with businesses.
