The East of England Regional Assembly was the East of England Local Government Association.

Organisation

Membership of the assembly was not by direct election. The assembly had 102 members made up as follows:

  • 54 members from local government (one from each of the local authorities)
  • 16 further members from local government, drawn to reflect political balance
  • 31 members nominated by stakeholders (must total 30%)
  • 1 member from the Broads Authority

Membership lasts one year and begins in July.

Leadership

Role

The assembly acted as the representative voice of the region and works to promote its economic, social and environmental well-being. [1] The key functions of the assembly were:

  • Co-ordinate the public expenditure of local authorities
  • Act as regional planning body
  • Scrutinise the work of the regional development agency

Following criticism of the regional assemblies, it was proposed in July 2007 that they will be axed, losing their role by 2010 with powers passing to the East of England Development Agency and to local authorities.[2]

East of England Plan

The East of England Plan, a Revision to the Regional Spatial Strategy for the East of England, was published on 12 May 2008[3]
