Call for evidence for APPG South East

Friday, 10 December, 2021

Ahead of the Government’s Levelling Up White Paper expected in 2022, the All-Party Parliamentary Group for South East is launching an inquiry – Financing for the future – what does levelling up mean for South East England?  

Recent polling of residents and businesses commissioned by South East Councils found that 37% of residents and around a quarter of businesses (23%) indicated they did not know what ‘level up’ meant.

Discussion will focus on issues related to Levelling Up and the South East. The APPG South East is keen to hear from organisations and individuals across the region on expectations, requirements and concerns related to the Government’s Levelling Up agenda.

Written submissions of no more than four A4 pages (approximately 1,600 words) are invited by 12th January 2022.

Please provide your:

  • Organisation name and sector (or name if replying as an individual)
  • Contact details including email and phone number
  • Willingness to come to speak at a meeting of the APPG
  • Consent (or not) for your submission to be placed on the webpage of the APPG

Submissions should be sent by email to
