The 2009/10 Brighton & Hove Business Directory – detailing over 5,000 businesses in the city has been launched by Brighton & Hove City Council.
Unlike most other business directories, the Brighton & Hove Business Directory includes information on the size of the company, number of staff, business sector and a named contact. It also offers useful information on the city's economy, as well as contact details of business support and networking agencies in Brighton & Hove.
Leader of Brighton & Hove City Council, councillor Mary Mears , hopes that the directory will encourage city businesses to buy locally. “This is an invaluable guide to businesses in the city. Shopping locally plays a crucial part in sustaining the city’s economy and helps protect local jobs. Supporting independent traders is particularly helpful as profits from these sorts of businesses are more likely to be re-invested in Brighton & Hove.”
The directory is available free as a hard copy from Brighton & Hove town halls and via the internet. You can search the on-line version at http://www.burrows.co.uk/brighton or download the database as a PDF file. A large print version can be downloaded from Brighton & Hove City Council's business directory page on http://www.brighton-hove.gov.uk/business
