Report of the Chair, Greater Brighton Officer Programme Board
1) That the Board approves the proposals for the Greater Brighton City Region Workshop and the associated work streams.
5.1 The Committee considered a report of the Chair, Greater Brighton Officer Programme Board that provided an update on discussions with central government about a City Region focused deep dive into the issues, challenges and economic opportunities in the Greater Brighton Region and sought Board support for the planned activities to raise the profile of the Greater Brighton City Region with government.
5.2 Councillor Morgan welcomed the update adding that officers from key government departments would be visiting to see the work of the Board and the City Region and he would urge other Board Members and partners to attend.
5.3 Councillor Wall stated that whilst he welcomed the extra time provided to prepare, the agenda for the workshop was very focussed upon Brighton and activity from across the Region could be better reflected in the programme.
5.4 Nick Juba stated that central government were keen in driving improvement in skills and the issue could have more prominence in the agenda.
5.5 Nick Hibberd thanked members for their comments that would be taken into account. The workshop would be limited to two days and it would be difficult to reflect the very broad work of the Board in that timeframe so key aspects had been targeted in the programme. In such a short timescale, it was not desirable not travel too much across the Region but there would be a specific focus on housing delivery in Mid-Sussex and progress on the Newhaven Enterprise Zone encompassing a visit.
5.6 RESOLVED- That the Board approves the proposals for the Greater Brighton City Region Workshop and the associated work streams.
