Regional planning

From April 2010 the East of England Regional Strategy Board of the East of England Local Government Association was responsible, in cooperation with the East of England Development Agency, for strategic planning in the region. This role as a local authority leaders' board was established by the Local Democracy, Economic Development and Construction Act 2009. This role ended in 2010 with the abolition of statutory regional planning in England.
