Working in partnership with district and borough councils

How we are working closely with local councils to promote economic growth.

Partnership pledges have been made between the district and borough councils and the County Council to bring local improvements for West Sussex residents, businesses and visitors.

Growth Deals have already been agreed for Crawley, Burgess Hill, Adur and Worthing.

The five-year, tailor-made deals each identify specific priority projects supporting the delivery of growth, including new homes and new jobs. They also provide a clear set of working principles and formalise how we will work together as a partnership going forward.

The aim of the deals is to promote local economic growth, attract and bring together investment and deliver projects as part of a partnership approach between the public and private sector.

The Crawley Growth Deal identifies projects such as regenerating Crawley town centre and the Manor Royal Improvement Programme.

The Deal for Burgess Hill will see significant investment in the town, with approximately 5,000 new homes and two new business parks.

The Adur and Worthing Growth Deal includes regenerating Worthing town centre and development at the Decoy Farm Site in East Worthing, New Monks Farm and Shoreham Harbour.

Work is ongoing to explore growth deals for other areas of the county.
