Business Plan


The focus of the framework is to act as the catalyst for positive growth in Newhaven, which would not happen so readily without the practical incentives for business, and shared ambition for the economic success of the town.

The three priorities for growth seek to ensure lasting and positive change:

Priority 1, Quality Growth

To promote cohesive development which will foster pride in Newhaven, recognising the town’s exceptional natural capital and also its working port and coastal connections.

Priority 2, Inclusive Growth

To deliver local skills and support for businesses which will create a diverse and prosperous economy, ensuring Newhaven residents are shared benefactors of change.

Priority 3, Sustainable Growth

To invest in housing and infrastructure which will attract inward investment, creating a lasting economic and social legacy for Newhaven.
