A STORY OF RESILIENCE

In March 1941, during the Blitz when Plymouth was subjected to heavy overnight bombing raids, St Andrew’s Church was burnt out and left a roofless shell. A board bearing the word ‘Resurgam’ later appeared on the North Door – the Latin word for ‘I will rise again’.

In March 2020 we were facing a different set of challenges, the biggest economic challenge the city has faced since the Blitz.

Resurgam was the name for our economic response plan for Plymouth. It was our action plan to reduce the impact of Covid-19 and to deliver a more equal, sustainable and prosperous city post Covid-19.

We’re now entering a recovery phase; a time to refresh, refocus and reenergise and focus forward on delivering economic growth.
