The Greater Brighton City Region is a true functional economic area covering a triangle from East Grinstead in the north to Lewes in the East and Worthing in the west.

Nearly 700,000 people call the City Region ‘home’, and there are just under 300,000 jobs in 34,640 active business units (29,490 of those VAT/PAYE registered) creating a diverse, vibrant, economic community.

The Centre for Cities has rated Greater Brighton in the top 5 for jobs growth in the last 10 years and 37,000 more jobs are expected to be created by 2030
