East Sussex Economy Recovery Plan

The East Sussex Economy Recovery Plan aims to build sustainable prosperity for our businesses, voluntary, community and social enterprise sectors, and support residents to access new opportunities that drive economic recovery and resilience.

East Sussex Reset – Recovery As Opportunity

Developed by Team East Sussex (TES) in direct response to the Covid-19 pandemic, the Economy Recovery Plan focuses on businesses, skills and employment in a post Covid-19 landscape. The plan also supports other activities being progressed at a local level, including climate change and health and wellbeing initiatives.

The plan seeks to deliver the change that is required – both as a response to the pandemic but also to capitalise on the opportunities it presents. Change should be a positive one and help to drive inclusive growth across the county.

The plan was published in September 2020 and will cover the next 12–18 months, eventually leading to the future publication of a revised East Sussex Growth Strategy.
