Key projects get funding

£17.6M of Local Growth Fund Round 3 is to be invested in the Brighton area over the coming year, to drive two key projects forward.

These projects are:
  • Sussex Bio-Innovation Centre - delivering a new £99m Life Sciences building at the University of Sussex’s Falmer campus. This building will provide dedicated teaching space, modern laboratory equipment, technical support and inspiring collaboration spaces for academics, researchers and clinicians from different disciplines to share knowledge and create innovative partnerships - £5.5million
  • Brighton Waterfront, Black Rock Site Development – delivering a new world class conference and multi-use venue at the Black Rock Site, alongside a major expansion of the city’s retail offer through an extension of Churchill Square shopping centre - £12.1M.
These sums are part of the £48.73M total of Local Growth Fund Round 3 which is to be invested in a number of projects across the Greater Brighton City Region over the coming year.  As well as the City of Brighton & Hove the Greater Brighton City Region comprises Adur and Lewes, Worthing & Burgess Hill.

The funds are being administered by the Government by Coast To Capital, the Local Economic Partnership covering the City Region. The Greater Brighton Economic Board is now working closely with Coast To Capital on a phased release of funds into these transformative projects.
