Archived Regional Development Agency information

In accordance with government policy, all Regional Development Agencies (RDAs) closed on 31 March 2012.

Prior to this, RDAs transferred a range of assets, liabilities, functions and activities - including ongoing project responsibilities - to other public sector bodies. This includes a portfolio of land and property assets and liabilities transferred to the Homes and Communities Agency (HCA).

The BIS web pages on RDAs, explaining how they were funded, how their Boards were structured etc, can be found on The National Archive website. See:

Each RDA had its own corporate website. For access to these see index of regional government websites held by the National Archives. (Please note that none of these sites is live or up to date).
