East of England is one of the nine official regions of England. The current boundaries include Essex, Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire, Peterborough, Norfolk and Suffolk. In common usage the area may widely vary.
The East of England region shares part of its borders with London. Because of high degrees of interdependence it is arguable that neither London nor its neighbouring regions can approach sustainability in isolation.
