Cllr Roy Perry (Chairman)

Established in April 2009 to promote the views and interests of local government – be that unitary, county, district or borough – across the South East, SEEC is a regional grouping of the Local Government Association (LGA).

The majority of Councils across the South East are SEEC members and, working in partnership we pursue four main objectives:

* To promote and maintain the South East’s position as a leading global economy

*To seek and secure fair funding for the South East region

*To provide and act as a unified democratic voice on South East interests

*To monitor and highlight the economic pulse of the South East

Much of our work involves making the case on regional strategic matters and local funding priorities to and through Government, Parliament, Industry and the media.

Every six months we publish a dashboard highlighting key trends affecting councils across the South East. 

SEEC also holds the SEEDA economic intelligence archive so that this information remains as a public record following SEEDA’s closure in March 2012.

Assisting local authorities to support refugees

The South East Strategic Partnership for Migration (SESPM) – hosted by SEEC – coordinates delivery of the Syrian Vulnerable Persons Relocation Scheme and the Vulnerable Childrens Relocation Scheme across the region.  

Since July 2016 the Partnership has also coordinated the National Transfer Scheme for Unaccompanied Asylum Seeking Children.
