PUBLIC SECTOR: Band & Brown set to promote East of England Assembly

The East of England Regional Assembly has appointed external PR support.

Following a three-way pitch, the Norwich office of Band & Brown Communications has been hired to raise awareness of the assembly's role to residents in its six regions of Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire, Essex, Hertfordshire, Norfolk and Suffolk.

Band & Brown MD in Norwich Patrick Peal said that aside from promoting the assembly's role in encouraging economic and social growth, another major issue to be addressed will be devolution.

A Government White Paper on regional governance published in May has indicated that greater autonomy for the English regions is being considered.

Peal said: 'It's important that those in the area start discussing devolution and understanding what it could mean.

'Not a lot of people understand the role of the assembly - that needs to change,' he added.
