South East England Development Agency is Closing on March 31, 2012

The Government has announced that all Regional Development Agencies (RDAs), including SEEDA, will close by 31 March 2012.

Responsibility for economic development and regeneration in England is being passed onto successor bodies, including Local Enterprise Partnerships (LEPs) and central Government departments

Our objective is to ensure a professional and cost effective closure by this date.  We have pledged to work closely with our partners, contractors and stakeholders to ensure that the past and future economic benefits of key programmes and assets continue to deliver the greatest economic value for the South East and value for money for the taxpayer.

SEEDA is overseen by a Board made up of private and public sector representatives from around the South East and SEEDA’s own Executive Management team. The Board brings together business experience and knowledge of the South East to inform direction and decisions.

The Board has corporate responsibility for ensuring that the Agency fulfils the aims and objectives set by the Secretary of State and to advise the Agency on key strategic issues.

Meetings are held about eight times a year, one of which is the Annual Open Public Meeting. The agendas and minutes of these meetings are available here.
