The Greater Brighton City Region is a true functional economic area covering a triangle from Crawley in the north to Seaford in the East and Worthing in the west.
More than 900,000 people call the City Region ‘home’, and there are more than 400,000 jobs in 40,000 businesses 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.
