Adur & Worthing Economic Strategy (ES)
The Adur & Worthing Economic Strategy sets out ambitious plans for how the place will achieve “good growth”. This 'good growth' is not about growth at any price; but one that balances economic success with the best quality of life for our people, sustains our natural assets and the environment and continues to attract increasing numbers of visitors.
Worthing is an increasingly popular business location with great transport and digital connections, a popular seaside destination for visitors and a place whose residents enjoy an enviable quality of life. Adur's large manufacturing sector offers a transformation opportunity to move to advanced manufacturing through the application of technology, innovation and skills. Companies such as Ricardo, Rayner Lenses and Glaxo Smith Kline, Lemo Electronics, Infinity Foods and Higgidy Pies recognise the advantages of being in Adur and Worthing and a growing number of companies are choosing to locate here.
The Economic Strategy is based on a rigorous understanding of our economic performance across four main dimensions; Economic and Business Performance, People and Work, Infrastructure and Connectivity and Community cohesion.
The Strategy identifies a small yet focused set of priorities where we, working with our partners, can add value and make a real difference to our area's economic performance.
