A new prosperous economy, enhanced town centre and revived community.

The town’s natural assets, set against an industrial port make Newhaven unique. There is a strong sense of community with a growing number of young families coming to live in the town, many of which making the most of its coastal location, access to Brighton and transport links further afield.

Whilst the Enterprise Zone is made up of eight individual sites, the work the Enterprise Zone wants to achieve over the next 25 years will impact the whole community.

A place to live and work

Newhaven has the potential to be a thriving town that capitalises on its natural assets, supports its roots as an industrial port town and prides itself on its vibrant community. In order to build on the town’s current leisure offer, work must be done to attract higher-value businesses that in turn will contribute to a prosperous economy. The vision for the town is reflected in the Enterprise Zone’s three strategic priorities that address these issues, putting actions in place to support the growth of the town.

Newhaven EZ Community Fund
