Economic Partnership kick starts city strategy consultation

On Tuesday 31st October, over 100 businesses came together to set out their views on the future of the city.

Representatives from the private, public and third sectors, along with political leaders from the Greater Brighton area gathered at the iconic i360 to begin to piece together what will undoubtedly be the most challenging Economic Strategy for the city and wider region, since the financial crash ten years ago.

Bri
ghton & Hove’s economy is finely balanced with both the Tourism and Financial sectors relying heavily on EU nationals.  Add to that a lack of office space, poor transport connectivity, the housing crisis and a future rise in automation, the threats seem abundant.

T
he event however showed a strong belief in the city and wider region and a commitment to work together, across our borders, to deliver economic prosperity for all.

Brighton & Hove in an economic powerhouse, providing over £7bn GVA annually.

The CDIT Sector (
Creative, Digital& Information Technology’
) is one of the fastest growing, and our two world class universities give us a wealth of talent to be capitalised on.

T
he merger of City College Brighton and Northbrook College Sussex in to the MET
has strengthened the FE offer in too, giving more and more residents the opportunity to succeed.

Work with the Coast to Capital Local Enterprise Partnership has already meant an additional £150m worth of funding for the city region and work has already begun to set up a Sub National Transport Body to deal with current transport issues.

The strategy is being produced in partnership between the Economic Partnership and the City Council.

Regeneris Consulting, who were awarded the contact to devise the work, have now been given the gauntlet to provide a visionary piece of work which not only looks to the city, but also to the wider city region, to ensure that economic success is for all and that no one is left behind.

If you have any specific thoughts on how the future of the city and wider region should be developed, please contact Barney Cringle at

b.cringle@regeneris.co.uk, using Brighton & Hove Economic Strategy Consultation in your header. 

The consultation will last until mid-January 2018 and the new strategy available from April 2018.
