We are currently developing our new Strategic Economic Plan for economic growth.

The first Coast to Capital Strategic Economic Plan (SEP) was published in March 2014. Since then, there have been significant changes to our operating environment, including the decision to leave the EU and an Industrial Strategy Green Paper, and changes to the economic development of the region. We need a new SEP that is relevant to this new environment.


Our new SEP will clearly set out our strategy for economic growth for the region, what the challenges and opportunities are, and what conditions, investments and interventions we need to achieve that growth. Our SEP will also be the main tool we use to inform our conversations with the Government. 


It will reflect and take account of the diversity and different places that make up our region, painting a picture of the cities, towns and villages, and the drivers that influence our economy, such as BREXIT, the airport expansion decision, and proposed improvements to Brighton Main Line.


Our SEP will be developed in-house by Coast to Capital in collaboration with our partners and stakeholders across the region. 


Please see the SEP Stakeholder Presentation in the related resources section for an update on our work.

If you would like to share any information, evidence or insight you think would be useful in the development of our new SEP, please do so via our dedicated email address – sep@coast2capital.org.uk.


If you have any questions or would like any further information about our SEP, please contact sep@coast2capital.org.uk.


This page will be updated with more information on our SEP, including a timescale for publication, as soon as possible.  


For more information please refer to the 'Related Resources and Related Projects' section on the right-hand side menu.
