A partnership between councils and businesses which will help shape the future of Brighton and Hove has been given the go-ahead.
The Coast To Capital Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) bid, backed by Brighton and Hove City Council, Gatwick Diamond business area, West Sussex County Council and the London Borough of Croydon, is among the first LEPs to be given the green light, Business Secretary Vince Cable has announced.
Mr Cable said that up to 25 LEP submissions from around the country have been successful.
A White Paper revealing how LEPs will work and be funded will be published today.
The East Sussex bid, which has merged with proposals from Kent and Essex, has also been given the go-ahead.
