Like eating out? Or meeting up with friends for a drink? Or do you prefer to spend your evenings at the cinema or theatre?
Members of Adur and Worthing Councils' Joint Overview and Scrutiny Committee are currently undertaking a review of the evening and night time economy across our communities.
The aim is to see if there is a need for any improvements or new approaches to improve the way it is managed.
The evening and night time economy is considered to be economic activity that takes place between 5pm and 6am.
It covers such activities as eating out in restaurants, cafes and takeaways; drinking in pubs, clubs and bars; and culture and entertainment in theatres and cinemas. It also involves the provision of accommodation, such as hotels, Bed and Breakfast, Air B&B and guesthouses.
The Scrutiny Working Group has already been discussing the issues with people and organisations involved and would now like to get the views from local residents, businesses and visitors on the evening and night time economy.
Worthing Councillor Bob Smytherman, who chairs the cross party working group, said:
'The night-time economy brings massive benefits to our wider area, bringing in millions to the economy and creating hundreds of jobs. For those reasons it's vital that we get as many views as possible to feed into this work.'
