Strategic Economic Plan (SEP)

Our Strategic Economic Plan, 2018-2030, was launched at our Annual General Meeting in July 2018. The plan – Gatwick 360˚ – sets out the scope for economic growth in an area which is hugely important for the national economy and has Gatwick Airport at its heart.

Our vision

Our vision by 2030 is for the towns and cities in the Coast to Capital area to be known around the world as fantastic places to live, to grow and succeed and for the area to become the most dynamic non-city region in England, centred around a highly successful Gatwick Airport.


Our eight economic priorities

Priority 1: Deliver prosperous urban centres

Priority 2: Develop business infrastructure and support

Priority 3: Invest in sustainable growth

Priority 4: Create skills for the future

Priority 5: Pioneer innovation in core strengths

Priority 6: Promote better transport and mobility

Priority 7: Improve digital network capability

Priority 8: Build a strong national and international identity


To produce the SEP we engaged with local stakeholders (including businesses, local authorities and education providers) and held a public consultation, over the course of a year.

The publication of the strategy is the first step in our plan to negotiate a strong Local Industrial Strategy with Government and attract significant investment for the region.
