Endorsement: West Sussex County Council Economy Reset Plan 2020-2024

The County Council’s Economic Growth Plan 2018-2023 sets out the Council’s priorities and opportunities for economic growth in West Sussex.  Work has progressed over the past two years and positive outcomes have been achieved. With the emergence of COVID-19 it has been agreed to `reset` the Economic Growth Plan to provide the framework for the Council’s response to the impact of the pandemic on the economy, businesses and residents. The economy reset will also inform the County Council’s Corporate Plan Reset in due course. The Reset Plan will be delivered within existing budget allocations for the economy.

Cabinet will be asked to endorse an update of the West Sussex Economic Growth Plan 2018-2023 as the `Economy Reset Plan 2020 – 2024’.
