Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update:

The economic impact of the pandemic has affected all parts of the UK, including Adur and Worthing. Many sectors have seen reduced income with some parts of the economy unable to trade on a sustainable basis. The pandemic has also resulted in the growth of some sectors.

Our most recent analysis suggests that, overall, the businesses of Adur & Worthing have shown significant resilience to the situation, compared to other areas across the UK. Close monitoring will continue, as well as intervention where required, to ensure our local economy receives all the necessary support to see it through this challenging period.
