    £48.73million investment comes to the Greater Brighton City Region 

    In a significant demonstration of the Chancellor’s commitment to the Greater Brighton City Region, £48.73million of Local Growth Fund Round 3 is to be invested in the City Region over the coming year, driving key projects forward.

    These key projects are:

    Worthing Central Phase 1 - the first phase of a comprehensive and co-ordinated transformation programme of Worthing’s Town Centre, stretching from Worthing Central Railway Station to the Seafront - £5.69million

    Decoy Farm, Worthing - transforming the site – which has stood unused for over three decades – into one of the most exciting commercial employment centres on the South Coast, providing openings for existing businesses to expand and attracting wider enterprise and investment from the South East and London - £4.84million

    New Monks Farm & Airport - establishing the essential road infrastructure needed to unblock the development of both New Monks Farm and the Airport Business Estate into a strategic employment and housing growth centre - £5.7million

    Burgess Hill Growth Area Infrastructure Package - putting in place a package of local infrastructure improvements – including road enhancements, public transport improvements, walking and cycling initiatives, access to the proposed Science Park among others – that will support the delivery of the £1b Burgess Hill growth programme - £14.9million

    Sussex Bio-Innovation Centre, Brighton - delivering a new £99m Life Sciences building at the University of Sussex’s Falmer campus. This building will provide dedicated teaching space, modern laboratory equipment, technical support and inspiring collaboration spaces for academics, researchers and clinicians from different disciplines to share knowledge and create innovative partnerships - £5.5million

    Brighton Waterfront, Black Rock Site Development, Brighton – delivering a new world class conference and multi-use venue at the Black Rock Site, alongside a major expansion of the city’s retail offer through an extension of Churchill Square shopping centre - £12.1million

    Councillor Daniel Humphreys, Chairman of the Greater Brighton Economic Board and Leader of Worthing Borough Council, said:

    “I am delighted to see this significant commitment to future growth across our Region.

    “At this point, we estimate that the six projects will attract over £700million of private sector investment into the Region. In practical terms, this will mean nearly 280,000 square metres of employment floor space for approximately 6,600 new jobs and over 5,900 homes to house our growing population.

    “This is great news for the City Region and a vote of confidence in the creative, innovative, agenda set by the Greater Brighton Economic Board.”

    The funds are being administered by the Government by Coast To Capital, the Local Economic Partnership covering the City Region. The Greater Brighton Economic Board is now working closely with Coast To Capital on a phased release of funds into these transformative projects.

    Further information will be released as soon as it is available and full details for each of the sites is contained in the 2015-16 Greater Brighton Economic Board Annual Report.

    Sir Robert Woodard Academy Events - Status Update 

    This year the Sir Robert Woodard Academy is taking part in the National Theatre Connections 2017 Youth Theatre Festival. Each year National Theatre Connections offer a unique opportunity for youth theatres and school theatre groups nationwide, to stage new plays that have been written particularly for young people to perform at the festival in leading theatres across the UK. 

    The Sir Robert Woodard Academy has selected the play Status Update by Tim Etchells a British artist and writer. The performance will be held in the Alan Strong Theatre at the Sir Robert Woodard Academy on Thursday 16th and Friday 17th February at 7.00pm. The performance will be attended by a Director from the National Theatre Connections and will be performed by 26 students from SRWA’s years 10, 12 and 13.

    Status Update is based around the life of teenagers and is described by National Theatre Connections as “an unflinching and funny catalogue of the things teenagers learn, believe and have sussed out about the world. From the ridiculous to the highly charged, all these truths and half-truths are laid bare before us, without the safety net of character or fiction”.

    Once the play has been performed on home territory, the ten regional theatre groups will play at their partner theatres; SRWA students will perform at their partner, the Minerva Theatre in Chichester, on 24th March. In the Summer, there may also be an opportunity to perform the play at the National Theatre in London.

    Tickets are £5.00 for adults and £3 for concessions and are available to purchase on the Academy website or from the Academy Box Office on 01903 875507.
