An independent unincorporated association with a membership of about 50 people [see below for details] drawn from every sector of the local economy. As far as possible it tries to recruit people who have been elected to their positions within their sector but this isn't always possible.
What does it do?
It works with the local authority and the Coast to Capital LEP to publish the economic strategy for the city and inputs into a wide variety of consultation opportunities at local and regional level that will influence the direction of the economy. Working closely with the city council, it also administers the city's inward investment website and contributes to the overall inward investment service.
What is the history?
Originally nine economic partnerships were established by the regional development agency [RDA] - SEEDA - right across the southeast. But with the demise of SEEDA and their funding in 2011 all but the Brighton & Hove Economic Partnership ceased to exist.
How is it funded?
It receives no direct funding from any public body. It is supported by the Brighton & Hove Business Forum which generates an income stream through a variety of revenue generating projects.
How often does it meet?
Regular meetings of the whole partnership are held quarterly but there are a range of individual meetings inbetween and the Executive meets eight times per annum.
