The Brighton and Hove local economy has grown to over £7bn in the last year, fuelled by the rise of new industries (creative and digital) and strong consolidation in others (tourism and retail). With 35,000 students, there is a huge pool of highly skilled and well-trained individuals to attract expanding businesses or start-ups – of which the city has one of the highest rates in the UK. The guardian reported Brighton is one of the most popular cities for those moving out of London. Perhaps the economy, coupled with Londoners being accustomed to high prices helps to keep Brighton rents and property prices buoyant.

The current population is around 288,000. The ONS predict it is expected to grow to around 304,300 by 2026 and will hit 327,300 by 2041.
