2. South East England Partnership Board
South East England Partnership Board members come from two major regional organisations: South East England Councils (SEEC) and the South East England Development Agency (SEEDA).
SEEC was established in 2008 to be the democratically representative voice of South East England. Its members are elected councillors from local authorities throughout the region. Eight members of SEEC’s Leaders’ Board are on the South East England Partnership Board.
Through the Partnership Board, SEEC and SEEDA will use their combined expertise to produce a regional strategy for the future of the South East. The strategy integrates the region’s environment, transport, housing, planning and economic policies.

3. The Government Office for the South East (GOSE)
As part of the Government's commitment to localism, decentralisation and the rolling back of regional government, Ministers announced in May 2010 the abolition of the Government Office for London and a review of the case for the abolition of the remaining Government Offices.
On 22 July 2010, the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government, Eric Pickles, announced to Parliament that the Government has the intention in principle to abolish the remaining eight Government Offices. The process will be subject to using the Spending Review to resolve consequential issues. The final decisions will be made at the end of the Spending Review in the autumn.
As part of our transition planning, the GOSE website has merged with a GO Network-wide site.
