Mike Weatherley, the Conservative Member of Parliament for Hove and Portslade, is backing Brighton & Hove’s bid for a City Deal and has contacted Ministers to convey his support.
In a move that has garnered cross-party support, Mike has joined with politicians from across the region to back a City Deal for ‘Greater Brighton’ that would help the area attract vital investment. Mike has contacted a number of his Ministerial colleagues to promote Brighton & Hove’s bid and is keen for the region to be recognised as the valuable centre of innovation that it is.

Commenting, Mike said: “While our local economy is strong, it has enormous growth potential that we should tap into. I was keen to emphasise to my colleagues in Parliament that Brighton & Hove is a unique hub that would benefit enormously from the opportunities that would arise from a City Deal.”
