The East of England Board leads for ADEPT in understanding and responding to strategic issues and policies in the East of England region. The Board understands that, while sometimes local authorities in the region have differing priorities, economic growth is a shared aspiration and often needs to be unlocked and fostered through joint partnership working. In all situations sustainable growth requires good quality planning, investment and infrastructure.
As it is not a subject board, the East of England Board has a broad and diverse remit and is able to discuss any issues which board members deem to be relevant for broader consideration. However regular items will include economic performance, challenges faced by local government, and the response to the Covid-19 pandemic.
