When is the deadline for responses to the consultation on your London Recovery Programme as outlined in your London Recovery Programme Overview paper published in October 2020, and what is your process for taking on board responses received?
Ensuring partners, stakeholders and Londoners are engaged in the Recovery Programme is fundamental to delivering the missions and achieving our Grand Challenge. Collaborating and involving London’s diverse communities is a programme cross-cutting principle.
We opened up conversations with Londoners on the aims agreed by the London Recovery Board and received meaningful input on missions’ development; record levels of public participation included 10,700+ responses to two surveys, and 78 community conversations hosted by 60 organisations reaching over 1,000 Londoners.
Opportunities for participation (and therefore ‘consultation’) are ongoing, including responding to the London Recovery Overview Paper. Reports on conversations, surveys, focus groups and roundtables carried out in the summer and early autumn have been made available to the London Recovery Board, Taskforce and Missions Teams on an ongoing basis.
We are currently working to develop mission-specific engagement programmes to feed into action plans. Opportunities to participate will be highlighted on Talk London.
