Key Strategies

The first Sub-Regional Economic Strategy for Brighton & Hove was published in 2002 by the Economic Partnership after considerable consultation with the business community and other stakeholders. It was reviewed in 2005 after a further period of intense consultation. The third, and current, economic strategy spans the years 2008 - 2016 and has been adopted by the City Council.

The ten year Tourism Strategy was produced by the Economic Partnership in 2004 in collaboration with the City Council and refreshed in 2008.
