Promoting the natural & economic assets of the area

The foundations for economic growth must build on the unique assets of the Coastal West Sussex area both in terms of business investment and the Visitor Economy.

The Coastal West Sussex Partnership will use its individual and collective talents and knowledge to take actions where it can to make a difference to the local economy.  The tourism economy must be promoted and celebrated, identifying each area’s own sense of place at the same time as offering the visitor a quality cultural offering.

In 2016 Coastal West Sussex commissioned TSE to provide some insight into the Visitor economy:

CWS Visitor Survey Report

CWS – Hotel Visitor Accommodation Development Opportuinities

CWS Non-Visitor Survey Report 

CWS Postcode Segmentation Report

CWS Tourism Industry Performance Report

The Partnership is working to raise the profile of the area by taking an active role in lobbying and influencing developers as well as increasing accessibility to information and data.

Investment into business is supported through the Invest West Sussex website, while tourism is promoted through the individual Authorities and the West Sussex Weekends website.


West Sussex offers the visitor and resident a huge choice of outdoor activities, water sports, family days out and events, all along it’s coastline and up into the South Downs National Park.
