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.
