News - 7 April 2014
Scott Marshall

Ex-Brighton Director appointed next door.

Scott Marshall, who was with the City Council for 11 years, has been appointed Director for the Economy at neighbouring Adur & Worthing Councils.

Scott Marshall left the City Council in 2010 when the then Chief Executive, John Barradell, replaced six senior postholders on the management team with four new ‘super directors’ to effect a change within the local authority to intelligent strategic commissioning. Only one of the four remains in post today and the strategic commissioning model has largely been abandoned.

In the intervening four years Scott Marshall established himself as a successful and inspirational private sector consultant working on a wide range of projects including helping to secure planning permission for City College’s £80m regeneration scheme and Brighton & Hove Albion’s new £30m training ground in Adur. He was also responsible for the research and content behind the inward investment websites for Brighton & Hove and West Sussex; Chichester and West Sussex County Council’s Economic Strategies; and in driving forward the Cathedral Group's £100m regeneration scheme at Circus Street, Brighton.

Together with Bruce Nairne, MD of Nairne Ltd, he crafted the Greater Brighton City Deal which was recently signed off by Minister for Cities Greg Clarke [see earlier story].

Adur & Worthing has enjoyed a number of inward investment successes in recent months including the expansion of GlaxoSmithKline facilities and the relocation of Rayner from Brighton [see earlier story]. A number of key sites have significant development potential including Adur Civic Centre; Union Place; Stagecoach site; Aquarena; Decoy Farm and Shoreham Harbour.

In January this year, the political leaders of Adur & Worthing Councils endorsed an ambitious growth plan, aiming to revitalise the area's social and economic prosperity.  Known as 'Catching the Wave', the report – authored by Alex Bailey, Chief Executive of the joint aurhority – sets out a clear, defined vision for the future and the Councils' place within the local community.

In addition to Scott Marshall, two other directors have been appointed:
  • Jane Eckford – Director for Customer Services
  • Paul Brewer – Director for Digital & Resources


The Economic Partnership looks forward to working with Scott Marshall on the many opportunities to enhance economic activity right across the coastal strip from Brighton to Worthing and welcomes his return to public service.
