Newhaven Enterprise Zone is a collaboration between Coast to Capital and Lewes District Council. The project aims to facilitate the economic regeneration of Newhaven and shift the town to a higher value economy over the next 25 years.

Newhaven Enterprise Zone officially commenced in April 2017. It covers approximately 79 hectares and is forecast to have the following benefits:


  • Create 55,000m² of new commercial and employment floorspace
  • Refurbish a further 15,000m² of commercial and employment floorspace
  • Create / safeguard up to 2,000 jobs.


Encompassing eight key sites situated throughout the town, the Enterprise Zone will focus on higher-end manufacturing encompassing the 'Clean, Green & Marine' sectors, building off Newhaven's historic strengths as a port town and gateway to the continent.


Growth on the Coast

The Enterprise Zone is a key component of Coast to Capital's growth ambitions. It represents a significant opportunity to drive the regeneration of a town that has unique scope for development of business space on the south coast, as well as the promotion of higher skills in the local workforce and expanding high value jobs in the town.
