The Greater Brighton City Region has an extraordinary mix of coastal, urban and rural landscapes (including the South Downs National Park, a UNESCO biosphere and a number of areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty). It has a strong cultural, heritage, visitor (including business tourism) and sports components.
This richness and variety within a 15 mile radius is regarded by residents and national and international visitors alike as a strong attractor for skilled labour and inward investment. There are a number of significant brownfield sites for regeneration and a growing investor appetite across the whole area (rather than just in established pockets of investment).
The Greater Brighton Economic Board is overseeing a dynamic portfolio of ongoing investments and regeneration opportunities designed to create the housing, employment and infrastructure to drive productivity throughout the City Region. For businesses, the Board has also created a tool to match business needs with vacant properties throughout the Region.
