The South East LEP’s Strategic Board has primary responsibility for overseeing the LEP’s work on transport – this is critical given the focus of the first Growth Deal settlement on transport schemes across the area.

The Transport Working Group advises on strategic infrastructure and technical issues within the SELEP area. It is advisory only and provides administrative and technical expertise to manage the SE LEP transport programme and to ensure compliance with Government, including management of the Independent Technical Evaluation process relating to transport schemes. Currently being re-established, membership of the Transport Working Group consists of technical representatives from each county and unitary local authority and private sector representatives with specific transport interests.
