About East of England LGA

The East of England LGA is a politically-led, cross party organisation which works on behalf of the 52 local councils in the East of England. We aspire to be:

  • A provider of innovative solutions to partners; delivering projects and services around key issues such as integration, commercialisation and organisational review.
  • A highly respected and influential advocate for our members; promoting their leadership of their locality, as well as fighting for them to get the resources, powers and freedoms necessary to perform that role successfully.
  • A catalyst for collaborative working; bringing together groups of councils to harness their collective strength and knowledge.
  • An invaluable resource of specialist expertise and capacity; providing advice and support to councils on key issues.
