Transport for the South East: response to consultation about statutory status

Transport for the South East (TfSE), a sub-national transport body that currently operates in ‘shadow’ form, is seeking to obtain statutory status.  The body has the twin purpose of facilitating the delivery of a regional transport strategy and promoting economic growth in the South East.  If it gains statutory status, TfSE will enable local transport authorities in the South East, including the County Council, to provide a single voice to Government on strategic transport issues and influence national investment decisions. 


TfSE is consulting on a draft proposal that will set out the membership, voting powers, decision-making arrangements, functions and general powers that it is seeking for the body through obtaining statutory status.
