The South East England Development Agency (SEEDA) sees Brighton & Hove, Southampton and Portsmouth playing central roles in a new coastal strategy that was published in draft form on 11th April.
The multi million pound strategy will aim to boost the economies of a string of coastal towns and cities by exporting best practise along the coast and generating new jobs. The strategy is part of the larger regional strategy which has just been published for public consultation.
A summit to discuss the outline strategy will be held in Brighton on May 16th hosted by the Office of the Deputy Prime Minister (ODPM). SEEDA Chair Jim Brathwaite said “The Coastal Strategy sets a clear framework for investment in skills, infrastructure and quality of life which we look forward to developing with all out partners, national, regional and local”.
The Brighton & Hove Economic Partnership will be working closely with SEEDA to put the detail on the outline strategy over the coming year.
