England’s Economic Heartland’s governance structure has been strengthened following a review by the leaders of our local authority partners.

Our two political-level meetings – the Strategic Transport Forum and EEH Leaders Group meeting – have now been consolidated into a single meeting, provisionally titled the ‘Strategic Transport Leadership Board’.

The Board will be held in public on a quarterly basis (as a minimum).

The Board met on 24 September when Cllr Richard Wenham was elected chair, and Cllr Liz Leffman was elected vice-chair.

In addition to core Board members, sub-regional groupings, such as growth boards and national and regional infrastructure and delivery organisations, will also participate on the Board as associate members and observers.
