Economy and Industry in Sussex

Sussex is divided for local government into West Sussex and East Sussex and the city of Brighton and Hove. There are still fishing fleets, notably at Rye and Hastings, but the number of boats is much reduced. There are working harbours at Rye, Hastings, Newhaven and Shoreham, whilst Pagham and Chichester harbours cater for leisure craft, as does Brighton Marina.

Brighton and Hove has a high density of businesses involved in media, particularly digital or “new media”. The University of Sussex and the University of Brighton provide employment for many more. A large part of the county, centered on Gatwick Airport, has been recognised as a key economic growth area for South East England. Several large companies are based in Sussex. Hailsham is the largest of the five main towns in the Wealdend district of East Sussex and has had a long history of industry and agriculture.
