Stretching from Brighton north to Crawley and Gatwick, Worthing across to Seaford, the Greater Brighton Economic Board is made up of six local authorities as well as businesses and education providers.
The board’s ultimate aim is to bring jobs and prosperity to the area. Our vision is that the Greater Brighton City Region will become the most successful economy in the South East connected with London.
So far we have brought in more than £150 million of direct investment into our local economies.
We are continuing the work by bringing in investment to kickstart regeneration projects; lobbying for improvements in infrastructure and transport; and selling the benefits of doing business in the area to a wider audience.
The result is to ensure is that Greater Brighton realises its potential as one of the UK’s leading locations for people to live, work and visit.
