Decision details

Greater Brighton Place Narrative & Inward Investment

Decision Maker: Greater Brighton Economic Board

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No


1)             That the Board recognise and accept that post-Brexit and post-COVID, the role of place narrative and inward investment is key to Greater Brighton’s recovery and future growth and approve the overall direction of the narrative and proposed approach towards inward investment.


2)             That partners agree that a level of funding is required for an Inward Investment Desk service. The report suggests that the minimum level of funding for an efficient service is £250,000 per year, although there are options beneath this. The Board agrees that work should commence to identify the most appropriate potential sources for this funding, including Local Enterprise Partnership and national government funding, to resource the desk from 2021/22.


3)             That the current team utilise existing resource to continue to develop and deliver elements of the plan, where possible, and report back on progress at the end of 2020 the work undertaken to date.
