The South East LEP’s strategic and technical working agenda is supported by a number of ‘working groups’ with representatives from public, private and third sectors, who combine their efforts to drive forward the interests of our area. Contributions to the working groups are made readily and voluntarily, reflecting the strong partnership base which underpins all of the LEP’s work. All working groups report back through the SE LEP Strategic Board as befits their work and the priorities of the LEP at that time.
Supporting the Working Groups, the South East LEP is further assisted by a ‘Senior Officer Group’ of representatives from the area’s county and unitary local authorities. This group provides specialist oversight of SE LEP activities and, while non-decision-making, exists to support and accelerate the business of the LEP and to provide support and advice to the Secretariat.
