SEEC’s priority is to ensure that Government policies and investment decisions take account of the needs of the South East and our ability, as the engine room of the UK economy, to help drive national economic recovery. Each year the South East  contributes millions more to the Treasury than is spent on public services in the South East.

SEEC members welcome the ‘localism’ agenda introduced since the May 2010 General Election and support the greater devolution of powers and funding to local government. As this agenda develops, we continue to make the case for the South East on specific policies and respond to Government consultations on issues relevant to our members’ interests.
