Working together to create an enhanced town centre and revived community.

The Newhaven Enterprise Zone works to promote well thought-out development which builds on the town’s exceptional location and capitalises on its working port and coastal connections.

The actions within the strategic framework that focus on quality growth support our ambition to build on the town’s cultural heritage and to encourage developments that make the most of riverside living and working.

Key aims

  • Enable the local community to access funds to enhance the local area
  • Grow the cultural economy in the town
  • Develop the town centre to create a community hub with a strong retail and leisure offer
  • Build on the legacy of the town and its vibrant community

Building a stronger visitor offer

Arts and culture is already thriving in the town, with more than 100 people part of Made in Newhaven, a selection of creative businesses calling Newhaven home and organisations working together to create art festivals and pop-ups.

The Enterprise Zone will support all businesses – makers, innovators, manufacturers – to develop their enterprises to contribute to a stronger town economy.
