Economy Plan

One of West Sussex County Council's top priorities is supporting the recovery of the local economy in light of the Covid-19 pandemic. To help achieve this ambition, the County Council has developed the Economy Plan (2020-2024) in response to the impact and challenges posed by the pandemic. The plan is an update of the Economic Growth Plan (2018-2023). The Economy Plan summary gives you a snapshot of some of the ways we are working to aid economic recovery, support businesses and play our part in boosting growth and prosperity.
