Folkestone and Hythe CLP statement re: Release of FHDC’s report outlining their ongoing response to Covid-19 pandemic

Folkestone and Hythe CLP statement:

Folkestone and Hythe Constituency Labour Party notes the report published today by Folkestone and Hythe District Council’s Tory-led councillors outlining the emergency and proposed ongoing response to the Covid-19 pandemic and impact upon the local economy and community. While this is welcome and urgently needed, the report needs far more detail and the local Labour party and our councillors will be contributing to this important work. Our own research indicates that the District Council’s current approach needs to evidence a far greater commitment to interagency work and to meaningful community engagement. This work is in progress and is already available on the CLP website here: https://www.fhlabour.org/community-recovery-planning-crp-framework/ur.org

We welcome comments and contributions from all sections of the community, leading towards the publication of the Labour Party report. Please e-mail comments to: news@fhlabour.org
