SEEDA and Sub-Regional Working

The South East England Regional Assembly undertook a Select Committee (scrutiny) investigation into SEEDA and Sub-Regional Working. We were commissioned with Makesfive to prepare the Context and Issues paper, feeding into the Select Committee held on 16 January 2009.
The focus was in particular on how effectively SEEDA’s approach to working with a range of partners and partnerships at sub-regional level helps to deliver both the Regional Economic Strategy and address local needs and priorities.The South East England Regional Assembly subsequently published its report and recommendations (112KB. These sat within the context of implementation of the Review of Sub-National Economic Development and Regeneration (SNR), and related to:
  • the need for greater co-ordination and alignment, notably through a joint approach to locality investment planning
  • extending the cross-organisational task force approach within SEEDA in tackling specific issues, including work around ‘priority places’
  • supporting and enabling co-ordination of local economic assessments
  • improving communications, including dissemination of research and evaluation and strengthening the use of the SEEDA website
