- View the background to item 18.
18.1 The Board considered a presentation from Barney Cringle of Regeneris Consulting that set out the results of initial studies undertaken into the regional economy.
18.2 Councillor Morgan noted that recent research undertaken demonstrated a significant boost to the economy of cities and towns that had a football team competing in the Premier League. Furthermore, there was worldwide television exposure that could be a boost to trade and tourism. Councillor Morgan stated that it may be beneficial to undertake similar research in a year’s time assessing the impact of Brighton & Hove Albion’s recent promotion to the Premier League.
18.3 Dean Orgill stated that the key themes of the study was the need for a stronger regional identity, the need for increased partnership between public and private sectors and also the need for the private sector to help deliver economic plans rather than present a series of asks to civic leaders.
18.4 Councillor Janio stated that it would be useful to receive a series of actions that could be delivered quickly and cheaply once the final study outcomes were known.
