Seminar addresses the future of the south coast

A high profile stakeholder seminar is being staged at the Alias Seattle Hotel, Brighton Marina on Monday 22 September to discuss the development of the Area Investment Framework (AIF) for Brighton & Hove and Adur.

The AIF will inform what regeneration funding will be pumped into the area in the future.

Council leader Ken Bodfish from Brighton & Hove Council, and senior Adur District Council Member Councillor Robert Dunn will be joined by area director Paul Lovejoy from SEEDA (the South East of England Development Agency).

The seminar will include up to 100 local business leaders, local MPs and senior figures from the local statutory and voluntary sectors. Other organisations sending senior representatives include both local councils, the health authority, local universities and colleges, business associations, housing associations, the police, the voluntary sector, the Learning and Skills Council, and Lottery distributors.

Ken Bodfish said, "The Area Investment Framework offers us a new and unique opportunity for us to work with our partners in Adur to develop a strategic approach to the regeneration of our area."

Neil Parkin also welcomed the new partnership initiative saying: "Resources are always in short supply and so it makes good sense to work together in tackling issues of common concern."

Seminar attendees will hear how the project is being developed and how they can continue to be involved in its progress. They will also hear how up to 90 senior figures from a whole range of organisations and top businesses across the area have already been interviewed as part of the project. The project aims to map all existing private, voluntary and statutory sector investment into the area. This will encourage additional government regeneration funding to be used most effectively to address local issues and benefit deprived communities.

Brighton & Hove and Adur have been asked to work together to tackle common regeneration issues. They will tackle sites important to both councils, including Shoreham Harbour and Shoreham Airport.
