Local Groups

Local Groups acted as advisory bodies for the RSG and provided a crucial opportunity for the wider stakeholder community to contribute to the RSG’s work. The Local Groups were made up of representatives from organisations with a regional, sub-regional or local perspective, with the group as a whole broadly reflecting the range of interests in the sub-region.

Roles and responsibilities of the Local Groups

The Local Groups met at key points in the process, to enable discussion, input and deliberation amongst members in response to the work developed by the RSG. Local Groups were responsible for:
  • ensuring that the RSG was aware of any local implications of options, draft recommendations etc, which may not be apparent at a regional level
  • offering information to the RSG to assist them in their work
  • responding to requests for information and/or comment from the RSG and project team in a timely fashion
The individual members on the Local Groups were individuals who could:
  • represent the interests of their organisation or group
  • contribute their views in Local Group meetings and between meetings when requested
  • work in a co-operative spirit, whilst respecting that a diversity of views may exist, keep their organization or group regularly updated and act as a conduit for information flowing both ways.

 

There were three Local Groups in the Balanced Seas region:

  • Essex, Thames, Suffolk and North Kent
  • Solent, Isle of Wight and Hampshire
  • Sussex and South Kent
