Economic Growth and Infrastructure

Growth and prosperity for our region is key and it is vital that we use our collective strength to secure better infrastructure, improved connectivity, and fairer funding.

Directed by our members, we:

  • Support the member-led Infrastructure and Growth Panel. This is a forum of councillors that collaborate, share best practice and advocates on behalf of all councils in the region regarding infrastructure and growth.
  • Ensure the voice of our region is heard through the Wider South East Partnership, particularly with regards to the upcoming review of the London Plan.
  • Support our member’s connectivity ambitions by providing a forum for our Subnational Transport Bodies to both engage constructively with each other and elected members from our region.
  • Explore regional housing delivery and the potential barriers that may be experienced by planning authorities in delivering their local plans.
  • Maintain a record of local growth and economic development funds obtained by local authorities in the area and use this to make the case for more funding for local authorities in the East of England.
  • Liaise with central government to ensure that their levelling up agenda takes account of the unique strengths and needs of the East of England.
