Report of the Director of Community and Children’s Services.


The Committee considered a report of the Director of Community and Children’s Services presenting an update on the COVID-19 Recovery Plan and the following points were made:


·         The programme of regular street audits had continued on a bi-monthly basis throughout the COVID-19 pandemic with an average of 14 individuals identified as rough sleeping in the City of London on any given night.  A significant number of rough sleepers had been supported into emergency accommodation with the City of London Corporation or the Greater London Authority during the pandemic.


·         37 guests were being accommodated at Carter Lane hostel where work to identify and move individuals into longer term accommodation was ongoing.


·         The City of London Police was taking a four ‘E’s approach to COVID-19 enforcement which comprised Engage, Explain, Encourage and Enforce. 


RESOLVED, that the update be noted.
