Economic Growth Initiatives

One of West Sussex County Council's key priorities is to ensure that West Sussex is a prosperous place, with a strong and vibrant economy.

To help achieve this ambition, the County Council has developed an Economic Growth Plan (2018-2023) to provide the framework for our work to sustain and grow the West Sussex economy.


The Economic Growth Plan is being delivered through a number of projects and initiatives within five priority themes:

1. Strengthening the coastal towns

2. Maximising the opportunities from Gatwick

3. Growing the green energy county

4. Promoting West Sussex as a place to visit and work

5. Enabling a workforce for the future


Read the Economic Growth Plan 2018 - 2023 and the Annual Action Plan 2019-2020.
