The recovery of Tunbridge Wells following the COVID-19 pandemic is a signficant and complex programme that has a key role to play in the economic vitality and community resilience of the borough and its residents. The COVID-19 Panel will seek to ensure that all political groups remain appraised of progress and the key issues associated with the Recovery Plan. Members will receive regular updates from Officers and key stakeholders regarding development and progress of the Recovery Plan and will be able to provide oversight and feedback on its delivery.
The Panel is a working group of Cabinet. It has no delegated decision-making powers or ability to spend budgets, and its advice and guidance will be reported to the relevant decision maker(s) for consideration and decision.
