About Growth Deals

Growth deals are partnership pledges that have been made between the County Council, district and borough councils and others.

Each five-year, tailor-made 'growth deal' identifies specific priority projects to bring local improvements for West Sussex residents, businesses and visitors that:

  • are delivered - through 'growth programmes' - as part of a partnership approach between the public and private sectors
  • promote local economic growth, including new homes and new jobs
  • attract and bring together investment
  • provide a clear set of formal working principles for how we will work together.

Growth Deals are now in place with all districts and boroughs in the county.
