The Greater Brighton Economic Board (GBEB) grew from the 2014 City Deal and now enjoys membership from across the public and private sectors.
The Board has seven key areas of focus, which it sees as critical to increasing productivity throughout the Region:
- Transport – keeping the City Region moving to support the new homes and new jobs coming to the Region
- Growth sites and public assets – making public land and property work harder, specifically through the One Public Estate programme
- Housing delivery – accelerating housing delivery to meet and surpass our planned housing supply to deliver 50,000 homes by 2030.
- Enterprise – creating an environment that will stimulate business, especially in the Creative & Digital Media, Advanced Engineering and Life Sciences sectors
- Skills – supporting learners by ensuring that there are clear, high quality professional and technical routes to employment, alongside robust academic routes, and supporting businesses to make better use of the skills of the available workforce to improve their productivity and growth
- Digital – making the Greater Brighton City Region the UK’s top digital and creative region outside of London, with specific focuses on infrastructure and digital public service reform
- Arts, Culture and Heritage – a more focused coordination of cultural and arts industries within the City Region to ensure continued support to this key workforce sector.
