Working with local partners to provide support for businesses and to encourage the creation of a diverse and prosperous economy.

Newhaven is home to a significant number of cutting-edge, growing businesses including Surrey NanoSystems, Boutique Modern, Plas-Tech and Brightwell. With private sector jobs accounting for 88% of jobs in Newhaven and many employing a large number of skilled professionals, the Enterprise Zone will work with local education providers, employers and skills groups to support the employment and skills needs of the local population.

Key aims

  • To establish strong localised business networks and encourage collaboration across sectors and supply chains
  • To deliver better-quality employment opportunities for local people
  • To promote Newhaven as a deep-water port and hub for maritime industries
  • To encourage the local community to apply to the Newhaven EZ Community Fund for support projects that will encourage a sense of place

Attracting high-quality businesses with bespoke development

With the opportunity for bespoke development across a number of sites, the Enterprise Zone will help establish a strong localised business network which will help create a new hub for collaboration, contributing to the town’s ambition. There is already an Avis Way & North Quay Business Forum set up to address key business issues including skills and recruitment, in particular, the importance of attracting local, young people.
